Inlet plan gets first OK

ADVERTISEMENT

On April 16, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) signed off on a plan to deepen and widen portions of Lake Worth Inlet in South Florida.

 

The existing channel is 33 feet deep and 300 feet wide. The plan would deepen the entrance channel from 35 to 41 feet and widen it from 400 to 440-460 feet, plus a southern approach flare; deepen the inner channel from 33 to 39 feet and widen it from 300 to 450 feet; deepen the main turning basin from 33 feet to 39 feet, and extend the southern boundary of the turning basin an additional 150 feet.

 

Once funded, ACE expects pre construction and contracting to take two years, while construction would take an additional two years.

 

The report now goes to the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works) for review, then to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, and then be transmitted to the U.S. Congress for authorization.
