The Army Corps of Engineers and the Texas General Land Office have reached the mid-point on the Coastal Texas Study, commonly referred to as the Ike Dike study. While the study won’t be finished until 2021, public comments will be taken through January 9, 2019.
This plan is a DRAFT plan. There is still a lot to decide, such as location of structures and their design and features.
Please join representatives of the Corps and the GLO to discuss these issues in any one of a series of public meetings to go over the plan.
