Manner of Execution

Codorus Creek is a tributary to the Susquehanna River that spans across 42 miles of York County, PA. The existing flood protection wall along Codorus Creek between Penn Street bridge and Tyler’s Run was constructed in the 1940s and was deteriorating at several locations, posing a threat to neighboring communities. USACE contracted with Mohawk Valley Materials, Inc. (MVM) to replace the Penn Street Floodwall. MVM demolished the existing flood wall and constructed approximately 600 linear feet of new floodwall extending west from the south abutment of the Penn Street Bridge to the Tyler’s Run tributary to Codorus Creek. The project included the driving of over 3,000 LF of steel H-piles and management of lead-contaminated soils. MVM mechanically dredged stream channel sediments and disposed of them offsite. MVM completed all work in accordance with detailed specifications and plans. MVM self-performed all work with the exception of the floodwall construction. MVM provided qualified key personnel with required certifications and experience to manage the Contract, including preparation of over 300 project submittals, and management of the schedule, budget, and scope.
