The work includes construction services that can construct, modify, and/or repair stone dikes and revetments on the Missouri River between St. Louis, MO and Rulo, NE in support of the Bank Stabilization and Navigation Program (BSNP), the Missouri River Recovery Program (MRRP), and other miscellaneous Missouri River operations, maintenance, and repair projects. Work will include rock placement for designated structures as well as rock and other material removal from designated structures. The work includes, but is not limited to, construction and /or excavation of river training structures, such as dikes and revetments, as well as flow control structures within side-channel chutes. Work consists of transport and placement of new, quarry run rock for repairing existing structures or constructing new structures, as well as removal or notching of existing structures and spoiling the excavated material. Most work to be performed will be completed by floating plant as limited land access will be available. Rock is typically placed or excavated by way of track-hoe from a work barge that can draft six foot of water or less. Work may also include dredging of the navigation channel or off-channel areas. Loading barges safely with mobile loading system or dock barge.

Special equipment: Barge(s) that are equipped to deliver and operate equipment which allows for the placement of stone to repair or modify specific river rock structures; mooring piles, anchors, or spud barges to obtain proper alignment and configuration while placing stone; and equipment used to place stone must be capable of accurately placing stone on structures and accurately placing stone below water to a depth of 20 feet below water surface. The dock barge or similar loading equipment will ensure proper rock loading.
