The Corps, MWRDGC, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad (BNSF), Canadian National Railroad (CN) and Commonwealth Edison could not reach agreement on terms for acquisition of real estate rights necessary to complete the project.
MWRDGC will complete the project areas where easements from the railroads and ComEd are required. Real estate acquisition has been completed by MWRDGC, and the design is being finalized.
Funds in the amount of $900,000 could be used in FY24 to initiate design to repair corroded sheet pile flood wall previously installed within the levee and apply protective coating to the remaining sheet pile. Contract award is scheduled for 1QFY24.
