Orange County Commissioners met with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District’s senior leaders yesterday for an update on the $3.9 Billion Sabine Pass to Galveston Bay and Texas Coastal Storm Risk Management project.

The project will include construction of 27 miles of new levees and flood walls in Orange County, Texas, and result in improvements to the existing Hurricane Flood Protection Systems in Freeport and Port Arthur, Texas.

USACE, in partnership with the Texas General Land Office, began an examination in November 2015 of the feasibility of constructing projects for coastal storm risk management and ecosystem restoration along the Texas coast.

The Coastal Texas Study will involve engineering, economic and environmental analyses on large-scale projects, which may be considered by Congress for authorization and funding.

According to USACE, the feasibility study and report will be complete in 2021.

The study recommendations will enhance resiliency in coastal communities and improve capabilities to prepare for resist, recover and adapt to coastal hazards.
