West Virginia The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is planning to build a floodwall to protect the city of Milton. The project entails constructing an 8,300-ft earthen levee along the Mud River, plus a gate closure across a public road and two pump stations. The Corps figures it will need 135 tracts of real estate to build the floodwall. Only 35 of those are necessary for construction, while the remainder are easements to allow periodic ponding of water after storms. Once completed, the wall will turn what is currently a 20-year floodplain into a 200- or 250-year floodplain, which drastically reduces the chances of major flooding and will reduce the cost and possibly even the requirement for flood insurance for home and business owners. The estimated project cost is $143 million. Construction is expected to begin in summer 2021 and be completed by the end of 2024. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 502 Eighth St., Huntington, 25701.
