The $6.9 million project repairs failed slopes on the levee’s landside, and constructs and installs four separate berms on the landside of the levee along the Great River Road north of Interstate 155. The Corps will begin project work on July 1, 2019 and plans to complete it by Dec. 1, 2021. Full funding for the project comes from the federal government through the Mississippi River and Tributaries Project. Local sponsors for the project are Lake County, the Lake County Levee and Drainage District, Dyer County, and the Dyer County Levee and Drainage District No. 1.
