President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will invest more than $845 million in U.S. Army Corps of Engineers studies, projects, and programs

Published Oct. 5, 2022

Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works announced additional U.S. Army Corps of Engineers studies, projects, and programs funded by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. These actions will invest more than $845 million to address urgent issues facing Americans, including supply chain resilience, flood mitigation, and costal storm damage protection.  The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Chicago District will receive a portion of those funds totaling around $3.45 million to assist in the completion of several projects across the Great Lakes, specifically the Lake Michigan shorelines of Illinois and Indiana.

 

The Chicago Shoreline Project received $550,000 to conduct oversight of the non-Federal sponsor designs to ensure that they are designed and constructed in compliance with USACE standards as well as to conduct a third party review.

 

The Indiana Shoreline received $2.9 million to provide beach renourishment at the Indiana Dunes National Park. This involves placing sand along the shoreline to mitigate increased erosion caused by interruptions of normal near-shore sediment transport processes within Lake Michigan.

 

“The Chicago District team is ready to implement these investments into the Great Lakes to protect against storms, flooding, and erosion. These projects will protect the shoreline as well as critical infrastructure to ensure that our shorelines can be enjoyed long into the future,” said COL. Paul Culberson, Chicago District commander.  “The team and I could not be more excited; we are incredibly proud of our role in this historic investment in the Great Lakes and stand ready to deliver on these projects to the Nation and our local communities.”

Please watch for future announcements regarding funds to be executed in FY 2024.
