Phase I Construction

Construction broke ground in September 2011 after nearly 20 years of planning and design. The main objective in the first phase of construction was the intial construction of the levee to protect the low portion of Highway 37. Because of the depth of bay mud underneath the levee, construction will require at least two years to build to it's design height to prevent potential failure. Over 160,000 CY of material was excavated onsite and placed along the levee alignment. The final levee will be constructed out of this material in Phase II.

Construction for Phase I was completed in December 2011.
