Mayor Garcetti and U.S. Army Corps Announce Significant Milestone For L.A. River
A $1.3 billion plan to restore a portion of the Los Angeles River continues to clear hurdles as it makes it way to Congress for final approval. Last week, the Chief of Engineers of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Lt. Gen. Thomas Bostick, signed off on the plan, pushing the project to the next level of review and closer to realization. This follows last July's major milestone in which Mayor Garcetti and local river organizations went to Washington, D.C. to present the plan to the Army Corps' Civil Works Review Board. The plan now makes its way to the Assistant Secretary of the Army, Jo-Ellen Darcy, and upon review and approval, will go to Congress early next year for the authorization of funds to begin construction.
