Status: Project Postponed
The ACOE completed a bid opening for the contractor, however the lowest bid was almost a million dollars over the independent government estimate.
As the additional funds were not available to meet the lowest bidder, the ACOE cancelled the solicitation.
ACOE will re-solicit in the Spring of 2021 with a dredge date to begin in October 2021.
Additional information will be provided in the Spring as it becomes available.
