Omaha, Nebraska (June 23, 2022) – Olsson is a partner in a joint venture selected for project work under a potential $20 million federal contract to evaluate railroads and roadways at U.S. military installations across the globe.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Omaha District named a joint venture between Stanley Consultants and Olsson as one of five teams to participate in the worldwide rail and roadway contract. The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract runs for a period of five years.

Members of Olsson’s Rail program will deliver design and evaluation services – including design plans, specifications, and design analyses – for railroads at military installations in the U.S. and other countries.
Potential rail work includes design of bridges and specialized railroad support facilities; inspection and maintenance recommendations for railroad tracks and bridges; field and laboratory testing of existing railroad/pavement subgrades; and specialized consulting services and engineering studies related to the planning, design, construction, and evaluation of railroad and vehicular pavements.
“This is an exciting win for us to be able serve the Omaha District worldwide and to continue our partnership with Stanley,’ said Steve Iverson, leader of Olsson’s Federal program.
