Dallas’ Trinity River Corridor Project starting to sink into dysfunctional mire
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are becoming increasingly uncomfortable.
The Trinity River Corridor Project is getting ever further bogged down, with the latest obstacles coming from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, who can't swallow their concerns about the safety. Those concerns have put a two-year delay on construction and will add another $29 million to the pricetag.
The DMN story -- co-written by Lee Hancock, whom the DMN always pulls out of East Texas or wherever it is she lives, for their Big Big Stories, so obviously this is serious stuff -- says that the top-ranking staffers at the Army Corps are all gung-ho, despite the fact that they're trying to build this thing in the middle of sand, whereas the lower-ranking people whose necks will be on the line are not.
