Corps wraps up vital Napa River ARRA construction contract
Construction crews wrap up work on a new railroad bridge in Napa, Calif., on July 10, 2012. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers constructed a new bridge, elevating the tracks off the ground as much as six feet, in preparation for construction of a dry bypass channel that will divert water during flood events more quickly down the Napa River. The bridge was constructed as part of a $65 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 contract raised more than 3,300 feet of railroad track and replaced two bridges. The Napa River Flood Control Project is a joint effort of the Corps, city of Napa and the Napa Flood Control and Water Conservation District.
