The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District has received $91,256,500 in the Fiscal Year 2020 Work Plan, to complete projects across the District’s area of responsibility. This is in addition to the $24,562,000 the District has already received in the Fiscal Year 2020 President’s Budget.
“This is a critical time for investments in our nation’s infrastructure,” said Lt. Col Jason Toth, USACE Buffalo District Commander. “I am encouraged that such a large investment is being made across the lower watershed of lakes Erie and Ontario, directly contributing to economic growth, quality of life, environmental health and national security for the American people.”
Funds will be used locally for navigation maintenance to repair the East Breakwater. That project at Great Sodus Bay Harbor will mean $4.5 million coming to the region as flooding concerns continue along Lake Ontario.
