Coyote Creek Flood Protection Planning Study:
The Coyote Creek Flood Protection Project (Planning Study Phase) was formerly called the Mid-Coyote Flood Protection Project. The use of the word “Project” tends to bring to mind a plan which is ready to be constructed. The work is now being described as the “Planning Study Phase” to better describe the process that is being undertaken to collect public input for a study. The funding for this study only covers the planning study, partial design and partial construction at Montague Expressway. The planning study is needed in order to ensure a project’s feasibility, determine if it can be implemented at a reasonable cost., and gain support at the local level and at the federal level for a future project. A project of this magnitude will need federal support in order to proceed to the final design phase and then to construction. Future funding for construction is not scheduled and cannot be requested without a planning study which has community support.
The timeline for the "Planning Study Phase" is:
