USACE Vicksburg District awards $9.1 million emergency contract for Natchez National Cemetery stabilization project
VICKSBURG, Miss. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Vicksburg District recently awarded a $9.1 million emergency contract for a stabilization project at Natchez National Cemetery. District leadership worked with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and city officials to expedite the project after high levels of erosion were discovered in the south and west reaches of the property. This effort will secure the integrity of the cemetery’s bluff from significant erosion incidents in the future to allow the cemetery to remain open for years to come.
