USACE Budget Plans $64 M for Virginia Dredging

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Tuesday delivered to Congress its Fiscal Year 2016 (FY 2016) work plan for the Army Civil Works program just hours after the president released his proposed FY 17 budget.

The proposed budget and work plan include a total of $64 million for Norfolk District civil works projects in Virginia through FY16-17.

 

 

Some of the major items include:

  • $31.4 million for the Norfolk Harbor Project;
  • $22 million to replace Deep Creek Bridge in Chesapeake, Va.;
  • $9.6 million for James River Dredging;
  • $8.7 million to maintain the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway;
  • $4 million for Craney Island Eastward Expansion in Portsmouth, Va.;
  • $3 million for the Hampton Roads Drift Removal program;
  • $1.15 million to complete the Norfolk Harbor Deepening General Reevaluation study.;
  • $875 thousand for the city of Norfolk Flood Risk Management Study.

The Norfolk District’s portion of the Army Civil Works budget funds studies, planning, design, construction, and operation and maintenance of water resources projects throughout the Rappahannock, York, James, and Chowan River basins, as well as the coastal portions of Virginia.

Both the budget and the work plan are subject to the approval of congress.
