U.S. to seek bids to build large new dam in Puerto Rico

The Corps of Engineers plans to seek proposals to construct a 220-foot-tall, 1,230-foot-long roller-compacted-concrete dam for the Portugues and Bucana Rivers project in Puerto Rico. The solicitation could be issued Aug. 31 with proposals due about Oct. 30.

The flood control and recreation project is located on the Portugues River three miles northwest of Ponce, Puerto Rico. Construction would involve 367,000 cubic yards of roller-compacted concrete. Appurtenant structures would include an integral spillway and intake structure. Work also includes foundation excavation in rock, placing foundation concrete, foundation grouting, and development of an on-site quarry for concrete production.

The Corps estimates the construction will cost between $100 million and $250 million.

The solicitation, No. W912EP-07-R-0019, will be issued, in electronic format only, about Aug. 31 on the Army Single Face to Industry Acquisition Business Website, https://acquisition.army.mil. Vendors must register on the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fedbizopps.gov, to receive notification of amendments to the solicitation.
