U.S. senators from Maine say Cianbro Corp. of Pittsfield has been awarded a nearly $29 million contract from the U.S. Navy to do structural repair work at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.

Sens. Susan Collins and Angus King made the announcement on Monday. The senators say the contract will support repairs and modernization of structures at a berth at the Kittery shipyard.

They expect the work will be finished by March of 2019. The project is designed to restore carrying capacity of the crane rail system on the shipyard's waterfront. It will also provide corrosion protection to the wharf.

Collins is a Republican and King is an independent.
