UP projects receiving funds

By Journal Staff

DETROIT — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District, announced that it is receiving nearly $26.7 million in the Fiscal Year 2022 work plan for operations and maintenance of Michigan river and harbor projects.

The FY22 work plan funding is in addition to the $4.8 million from the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2022, $117.2 million of FY22 president’s budget and $561 million of FY22 funding from the Infrastructure Investments and Jobs Act.

“This is exciting for the Detroit District to be able to provide engineering solutions to Great Lakes region infrastructure with these historic investments,” Detroit District Commander Lt. Col. Scott Katalenich said in a statement. “It will be challenging, especially with today’s unprecedented global supply chain disruptions and workforce challenges, but repairing, maintaining and improving our harbors and federal navigation channels is essential to the economic strength of our nation.”

Projects to receive additional funding through the FY22 Work Plan in the Upper Peninsula are Cedar River Harbor, $50,000; Grand Marais Harbor, $300,000; Manistique Harbor, $300,000; and the St. Marys River, $15.125 million.

The $4.8 million from the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2022 signed in March includes $200,000 to initiate a Menominee River study in Michigan and Wisconsin to investigate navigation channel deepening.
