Center Hill Lake Improvement Projects Identified for funding

January 21, 2022

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.
