Montana The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a $34.8 million firm-fixed-price contract to Ames Construction Inc. to construct a replacement irrigation diversion weir across the Lower Yellowstone River and a fish bypass channel through Joe’s Island, in Glendive. The weir consists of a steel W-pile section foundation with reinforced concrete crest structure capping it, and it will be upstream of an existing wooden weir constructed in 1911-1912, with riprap placed between the weirs.
