Corps Buffalo District seeks heavy construction in U.S. Northeast

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids from firms to provide heavy and civil engineering construction in its Buffalo District and other areas of the U.S. Northeast. Bids are due June 13.

The Corps’ Huntington, W.Va., District recruited firms in May for foundation pressure relief well and geophysical survey services at civil works projects in the Corps’ extensive Great Lakes and Ohio River Division.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, the Buffalo District said it intends to award up to five multiple award task order contracts for construction activities throughout the Buffalo District, which extends along the U.S. border from Ohio to Maine, possibly for work in the New York/Pennsylvania and Ohio Operations and Maintenance offices area of responsibility, and possibly elsewhere in the Great Lakes and Ohio River Division. The available funding for the contract pool is $40 million over five years.

The Corps said assignments in the Buffalo District could include work on Black Rock Lock between Lake Erie and the Niagara River at Buffalo and on Mount Morris Dam, a large flood protection dam on the Genesee River in Livingston County, N.Y. While Mount Morris does not have hydropower, ECOsponsible Inc. holds a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission preliminary permit (No. 14502) to study building a 1.1-MW Mount Morris hydro project at the site.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site,, by entering Solicitation No. W912P414R0005 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Bids are due by 1 p.m., Eastern time, June 13. For information, contact Oksana Strekha, Contract Specialist, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, 1776 Niagara St., Buffalo, NY 14207-3199; (1) 716-879-4122; E-mail:
