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 (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.
