The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded $17.45 million to the Trinity River Vision Authority. These funds will keep the project on schedule and will be used for valley storage projects, better known as flood risk management basis, along the river. This work is connected to the development of the Panther Island Project which includes a new Trinity River promenade, flood risk management infrastructure and the redevelopment of Gateway Park.

"We are honored that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recognizes this project as being worthy of funding and capable of executing," said TRVA Executive Director J.D. Granger. "We will work closely with USACE to put the money into construction projects immediately," he said.
