The Morgan Shoal segment is one of the last two remaining segments of the 1994 Congressionally Authorized Chicago Shoreline Storm Damage Reduction Project. The project non-federal sponsors are required to complete this segment under Corps oversight.
The project is currently in the design phase. The Public Building Commission of Chicago is managing the development of design, procurement, and construction of the project.
To comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), an environmental assessment (EA) was completed for the 1994 Chicago Shoreline Storm Damage Reduction Project feasibility report. Consistent with the previously completed project segments, the Corps is developing a NEPA supplemental EA specifically for the Morgan Shoal segment. The NEPA scoping period ended in November 2022, with the draft supplemental draft NEPA document to be released for formal public and agency review in the coming months.
