United States Senator Thom Tillis has secured $59,795,000 for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to go towards a multitude of navigation projects and multi-purpose flood risk management projects in Eastern North Carolina. 

These funds will come from the bipartisan infrastructure package supported by Tillis.

Funding is included for projects at the John H. Kerr Dam and Reservoir in Virginia and North Carolina which total $11,525,000.

The work includes performing non-routine repairs such as repairs to the right wing toe drain, sewer system and water treatment system upgrades and bridge repairs.

“I was proud to work with my colleagues to craft and pass the bipartisan infrastructure package,” Tillis said. “This long-overdue legislation is already delivering millions for targeted infrastructure needs in North Carolina. These funds will allow the Army Corps of Engineers to deepen waterways on North Carolina’s coast so we can ensure safe navigation and be better prepared for future storms.”
