Conquering a milestone is a big deal for our project delivery teams (PDT). On July 28, the Missouri Levee Gravel Resurfacing PDT celebrated reaching the significant Contract Award project milestone. They awarded the $1,983,466 contract to Better by Design which will resurface approximately 22 miles of the mainline Mississippi River Levee in New Madrid, Missouri. This maintenance on the levee’s crown provides safe and reliable access for vehicles and monitoring levee conditions.

Our much-appreciated local Partner, an important part of our team, on this project is the St. Francis Levee District of Missouri.

The Missouri Levee Gravel Resurfacing PDT members are Project Manager Jairus Stroupe, Technical Lead Bio Dambo, Cost Engineer Conrad Stacks, Contracting Specialist Latashia Muse, and Contract Officer Steve Austin.

Congratulations Team!
