The Pentagon says three Louisiana companies have contracts worth up to $200 million in total to armor levees in the New Orleans area.
The Pentagon says Bis Services of Kenner, Circle of Belle Chasse, and Shavers-Whittle Construction of Mandeville, were among 10 companies that bid over the Internet.
Their contracts are with the Army Corps of Engineers in New Orleans. They were on a list of contracts released last night by the Pentagon.
The work is to be done by December 2020. The amount paid for each job will be decided individually.
