U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS: BID OPENING FOR GRAYS LANDING DAM

 PITTSBURGH, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The bid opening for construction of one of the Pittsburgh District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' newest navigation projects -- Grays Landing Dam -- will be held Feb. 11 in downtown Pittsburgh at the Vista Hotel, Cambria Room, at 11 a.m.
 The construction work consists of excavation, construction of the 576-foot-long fixed crest dam and abutment, placing stone protection, installing rock anchors and removal of two abandoned barges.
 Phase I, right bank excavation, was completed in November 1989 and Phase II of the project, construction of its lock, is scheduled to be completed in April. The lock construction contract was awarded to Lane Construction Company of Meriden, Conn., March 1, 1990, for $78.6 million. The single-chamber lock is 84 feet wide by 720 feet long. Grays Landing Lock and Dam will replace Lock and Dam 7, three miles upriver. The project is scheduled to be completed in August 1995 at an estimated cost of $171.8 million, with half of the funds to be provided from the Inland Waterways Trust Fund and the other half from General Appropriations.
 The Grays Landing project is located at Mile 82 on the Monongahela River near Masontown in Greene and Fayette counties in Pennsylvania.
