A team led by Kiewit has won the $629.5-million design-build contract for a controversial New Orleans flood control project, according to the Army Corps of Engineers.

Bid protests, reprocurement, and a court challenge have delayed the awarding of the project; it was scheduled to finish in 2014 but now won’t be done until mid-2016, says the Corps in ENR. Work may start as early as the end of October.

The project will provide "permanent and more sustainable measures for reducing the risk of a 100-year level storm surge entering three outfall canals." Currently, interim closures are operating.
