A major milestone has been reached for the $459 million Dallas Floodway Project with the signing of the Project Partnership Agreement.

The agreement was signed today by Fort Worth District Commander, Col. Kenneth N. Reed, Dallas Assistant City Manager, Majed Al-Ghafry and Fort Worth District Deputy District Engineer, Eric Verwers.

The signing of the PPA is a milestone in the effort to build permanent flood protection in the area.

The Fort Worth District’s Dallas Floodway Project is located along the Trinity River upstream from the abandoned Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe (AT&SF) trestle to the confluence of the West and Elm Forks, then upstream along the West Fork for approximately 2.2 miles, and upstream about 4 miles along the Elm Fork.

The project, now in the planning phase, is one of two Fort Worth District projects along the Trinity River designed to reduce flood risk for the citizens of Dallas. The other project, the Dallas Floodway Extension Project, is in the construction phase.

The scheme, in addition to the adjacent Dallas Floodway Extension Project, focuses on three of five inter-related components within the Dallas Floodway System: flood protection, ecosystem restoration and recreation in partnership with the local sponsor, the city of Dallas.
