On August 14th, Tarpan signed the contract for the Flood Control, Mississippi River and Tributaries West Bank Mississippi River Levees Bayou Vidal Levee Enlargement Project MRL 416-R. Our client is the US Army Corps of Engineers, Vicksburg District. Principal features of the work include mobilization and demobilization, clearing and grubbing, semi-compacted levee embankment, ramps, semicompacted berm embankment, un-compacted berm embankment, removing and replacing existing gravel surfacing, crushed stone surfacing, mowing, turfing, erosion control matting, cattle guards, storm water pollution prevention and environmental protection. This project is a great fit for Tarpan because of the scope of work, location, size and timing. We received NTP on November 1, 2017. We mobilized to the site on November 8th and started the clearing and grubbing operations. We are confident this will be a successful project for Tarpan and the USACE.
