  • Tacoma Navigation Improvement Project – $500,000;
  • Puget Sound Nearshore Ecosystem Restoration engineering and design – $200,000;

The Army’s Civil Works FY 2018 work plan provides funding to start, continue, and complete studies and construction projects that will get dirt moving to better the lives of Americans, their infrastructure, economy and environment,” said The Honorable R.

For the first time, the work plan provides funds for two projects where the local sponsor could use Section 1043 of the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 to complete project construction.

This section authorizes USACE to provide its share of a project’s construction cost directly to a non-federal sponsor who is able to assume responsibility for construction of a USACE project.
