Phase 2 contract for Gateway Park work awarded by Corps

Posted May 31, 2019


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Fort Worth District awarded a contract totaling $5.2 million for the construction of Oxbow Phase 2 in support of the Trinity River Vision/Central City project.

The contract was awarded to Ahtna Inc., an Alaska Native Regional Corporation from Anchorage, Alaska, and is awarded under the Small Business Administration’s 8a program.

The work includes mass excavation of Oxbow Site H to develop valley storage for the Fort Worth Central City project. The project also includes tree protection, tree removal, utility protection, drainage culvert, fencing, site restoration using a variety of seed mixes and incidental related work.

Site H consists of an approximately 26-acre site that requires an estimated 81,000 cubic yards of excavation with all material exported to the Site I disposal site. A temporary site entrance and haul road will be constructed and maintained for construction equipment and hauling. A storm drainage culvert will be constructed as well as perimeter fencing to control access to the property.

Site I consists of an approximately 10.1-acre site that can handle all of the exported materials from Site H. The portions of the haul road between Site H and Site I will follow an existing City of Fort Worth haul road used for the demolition of an old wastewater treatment plant. Using this existing haul road should cause minimal impact to the public. A temporary access road will be constructed to allow entry and hauling operations from Site I and connect to the existing haul route.
