Olmsted Dam Construction

Posted on Posted in Current Projects

Our company was awarded a contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to construct a 2,700-foot-long concrete dam across the lower Ohio River near Olmsted, Illinois. The dam is part of a program to replace the deteriorating Locks and Dam 5/23 on this busy stretch of commercial navigation in inland waterways. Construction on this $895 million contract will be performed in multiple phases and is scheduled for completion in 2014.
