Leavenworth State Fishing Lake Spillway

Water/Sewer/Storm Infrastructure

Leavenworth, Kansas

Brief Summary

The Leavenworth State Fishing Lake Spillway had a Design-Bid-Build contract value of just over $1 million.  Completed in December 2018, the spillway project scope included concrete repairs and modifications to the existing weir basin structure, the full removal of the existing spillway, and the replacement of a new, cast-in-place concrete spillway structure.  The new spillway measures approximately 412 feet long, and is slab-on-grade, with walls on each side measuring varying heights; it curves along the existing spillway channel.  Additional elements include a new flip bucket structure, which is designed to act as an energy dissipater at the end of the channel to help with water flow.  A valve rehabilitation in the existing drawdown piping, gravel access roads, and site grading were also part of the Leavenworth project.  Crossland Heavy completed the project on time and within budget.
