ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, received $5.3 million to continue work on the Arcadia, Wisconsin, flood risk management project in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act Plan released today.

This project is intended to provide flood risk management for the central business district of Arcadia. It includes building levees, floodwalls, channel modifications and closure structures, as well as relocations and railway modifications. The entire project is estimated to cost $38 million. These funds will allow the St. Paul District to complete planning and design work and initiate construction.

“This first round of construction funding is a great step in providing long-term flood risk reduction to the city of Arcadia,” said Nan Bischoff, Corps of Engineers project manager working on the Arcadia project. “We anticipate seeing dirt moving during the 2023 construction season.”
