SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District awarded a $3.4 million contract Dec. 9 to Johnson Roofing & Construction Inc. of Ventura for roof repairs at the Defense Distribution Center Tracy.

Johnson Roofing & Construction will replace the roof of a warehouse that packages and distributes meals, ready-to-eat for the Department of Defense.
