Bad news for the Trinity River Project

Looks like the US Army Corps of Engineers has determined that the Trinity River levees are not up to snuff. So what does that mean? Well, if the city decides to continue with its plan to put in a "parkway"( tollway) between the levees and say there is a whole bunch of flooding, there might not be any federal funds to pay for clean up and damage. So we might not get that shiny new Calatrava bridge(s) and brand new park after all. Bummer.

The Dallas Observer's Unfair Park Blog has the entire report here, here, and here.
