The Texas General Land Office (GLO) and the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) announced the release of the Coastal Texas Protection and Restoration Study Draft Integrated Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement, in the effort to reduce the risk along the Texas coast from dangerous storm surges and other threats.
The GLO and USACE entered into a cooperative agreement to create the Coastal Texas Study in 2015. The final feasibility report and EIS is expected in 2021.
This plan also calls for a 12-foot tall, 20-foot wide dune berm and a 100-foot wide beach to be built in front of it across much of the City of South Padre Island.
The community is invited to review the plans and participate in a the public meeting today at 5:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. at the Port Isabel Event & Cultural Center, located at 309 Railroad Ave, Port Isabel.
