The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District, has announced additions to its fiscal year 2018 program based on the recently approved Work Plan.

This additional $79 million will be used in 2018 to repair breakwaters, dredge harbors and complete various projects and studies throughout the Great Lakes.

The Detroit District’s work plan increase of $79 million includes 21 dredging projects and four repair, replacement, or construction projects. Significant funding will be applied to the Soo Locks to help further asset renewal projects and the major rehabilitation of key components of the MacArthur and Poe Locks. In addition, the work plan includes design funding for two environmental projects.

These Work Plan funds will help address critical asset renewal and major rehabilitation projects at the Soo Locks facility, and also address numerous dredging needs around the Great Lakes. We construct, maintain and operate key infrastructure projects that are crucial to the nation’s economy, environment, safety and quality of life, now and in the future,” said Lt. Col. Dennis Sugrue, district engineer, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District.

The work plan came about when Congress appropriated additional funding for ongoing work in the fiscal year 2018 Energy & Water Development Appropriations Act as contained in the 2018 Consolidated Appropriations Act. The Corps developed an allocation plan for high priority work packages based on the criteria established by Congress.
