The company will begin work on 135 feet of floodwall along Milwaukee Avenue this fall. Next spring, after the completion of compensatory storage in Wheeling's Heritage Park, the company will begin closing a 600-foot regulated gap in the levee.

The contract is expected to be completed by January 2015. The levee stretches from Euclid Avenue to Palatine Road.
