U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host from 5-7 P.M. at Oakley-Lindsay Center

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it will hold an open house tonight about planned improvements to Quincy Bay. 

The Corps says that the open house, to announce the tentative plan for the Quincy Bay Habitat Rehabilitation and Enhancement Project, will be held from 5 to 7 P.M. at the Oakley-Lindsay Center. The open house is being held by the Corps with the Quincy Bay Area Restoration and Enhancement Association, or QBAREA, and both the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Illinois Department of Natural Resources. The Corps says that the $45 million project, which is federally funded through the Upper Mississippi River Restoration program, includes over 2,300 acres in Pool 21 of the Upper Mississippi River near Quincy.

During the open house, a project overview will be given and the audience can ask questions to the project team. A draft feasibility report, which includes the project’s tentatively selected plan and an environmental assessment was released last week. That report included plans to dredge the Bay, and to modify both the cut through channel and nearby Cedar Creek.

Public comments regarding the tentatively selected plan will be accepted through March 9th.
