KANSAS CITY, MO — Midwest Construction Company, of Nebraska City, Nebraska, was awarded a contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to make repairs to river training structures on the Missouri River.

The $27 million for the repair work comes from the BIL — Bipartisan Infrastructure Legislation — and is expected to be the first of several separate contracts awarded in the next 12 months to support navigation on the Missouri River.

Kansas City District Contracting Officer, Dave Best, signed the task order award as Col. Travis Rayfield, Commander of the Kansas City District, and several others from the project delivery team looked on.

This contract was completed through a previously negotiated Multiple Award Task Order Contract — known as a MATOC.

"The MATOC is made up of small businesses that have supported the Missouri River navigation mission for many years. This contracting tool allowed us to quickly get work going on these crucial repairs," Best said.

“This award will get the rock rolling," said Dane Morris, Program Manager, Navigation Restoration for the Kansas City District. "The dikes and revetments that will be repaired over the next couple years with these contracts are critical to maintaining momentum for our navigators who, through barge transportation, are tying the Midwest to shipping on the Mississippi River and on to the world."
