  • Update on Construction at Mississippi River Levee Near Black Hawk

    VICKSBURG, Miss. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Vicksburg District (MVK) currently has a construction contract underway to strengthen a section of the mainline Mississippi River levee system near Black Hawk, Louisiana. The construction was planned and initiated prior to the start of the current, ongoing flood event in the region. MVK awarded a contract to Phylway Construction to install 16 relief wells near Black Hawk in December 2018. The relief wells will provide additional control measures for potential sand boils in the future. Construction at the site has temporarily ceased due to unfavorable river and weather conditions. District engineers will continue monitoring the site with the goal of advancing the construction work when conditions permit.
