The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has extended the deadline for bids to supply submersible cable for 980-MW McNary Dam on the Columbia River. Bids now are due Nov. 9.

The Corps’ Walla Walla District previously called for bids by Oct. 24. In an earlier solicitation, it called for bids in February for submersible power cable for extended submerged barrier screens at McNary. The Corps awarded a contract in September to M.J.
