The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers delivered to Congress its Fiscal Year 2021 (FY 2021) Work Plan for the Army Civil Works program on January 19, 2021. The Work Plan provides $62.6M in funding for the Chicago District.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Chicago District closed out fiscal year 2020 with a record-breaking $241M program. A significant contribution to the spike in execution was $137M from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the district’s support to the COVID-19 pandemic response.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Chicago District (USACE) has completed construction for the final phase of the Fort Sheridan Great Lakes Fishery and Ecosystem Restoration (GLFER) project, located at Fort Sheridan Forest Preserve in unincorporated Lake County, Illinois. The majority of the $9.1 million federal share was funded with Great Lakes Restoration and Initiative (GLRI) funds received from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. USACE is one of 16 federal agencies that uses GLRI funds to plan, design, and construct long-lasting restoration projects in cooperation with nonfederal partners.
UPDATE: Closure will begin at 0700 CST on Wednesday, November 25, 2020.
