An upgrade to the Levee 37 Pump Station is underway and scheduled for completion in spring 2023. Supply chain issues delayed delivery of key electrical components.
USACE, IDNR, IDOT, and City of Prospect Heights continue to work on final plans for the last Levee 37 Closure Structure. IDOT must approve the plan and amend their inter-governmental agreement with IDNR before IDOT issues the solicitation for construction, which is scheduled to occur by summer 2023.
Once the closure structure is completed, USACE and IDNR will finalize certification with FEMA.
Remaining project segments have real estate issues preventing further construction at this time. USACE and IDNR will discuss next steps after completion of these Levee 37 activities.
