The U.S. Army announced Thursday the Civil Works studies, projects, and programs that the Corps of Engineers would implement in Fiscal Year 2022 with the $22.81 billion in supplemental funding provided in two recently enacted laws — the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act; and the 2022 Disaster Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act.
In the Nashville District, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is funding on Center Hill Lake the following projects: Paving the Johnson’s Chapel Recreation Area entrance: $125,000; Paving the Floating Mill Campground access road: $250,000; and paving Holmes Creek Recreation Area entrance: $350,000.
Lt. Col. Joseph Sahl, Nashville District commander, said there are aging facilities and critical infrastructure within the district, and these bills are providing much-needed funding for construction projects, and for operations and maintenance. He added that these funds are also about studies that create solutions to modern problems in a new way, as the Corps continues to seek innovative approaches and new partnerships to solve water resource problems.
