The Big Slough Channel Restoration project delivery team (PDT) members are feeling pretty good because they’ve reached the significant Contract Award milestone on their project. They awarded the contract to Polk & Associates, LLC.

Work on the $331,221 project includes Highway 139 bridge channel restoration and armoring the channel with riprap to reduce erosion. The project helps ensure the integrity of the Highway 139 bridge that serves communities in the Clay County, Arkansas region.
