    Protecting the Texas Coast

    The Coastal Texas Protection and Restoration Feasibility Study is currently the largest civil works feasibility study in USACE and in the United States with plans of coastal protection spanning across 76 miles of Texas coastline. The plan calls for coastal storm resiliency measures to include surge gates, vertical lift gates, ring barrier, height extension of the seawall as well as beach and dune measures. Over the course of the study, over 600 storms were modeled and analyzed by a state-of-the art Coastal Storm Modeling Suite.
