Eyes on the Road: Army Corps of Engineers could get money for roads

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers — and Lake Lanier in particular — could be getting at least a small amount of money under the government’s 27-month transportation spending bill passed last July by Congress. The Federal Lands Transportation Program is included in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act, providing some $300 million for projects to improve access on federal lands, said Timothy A. Rainey, operations project manager at Lake Lanier. The National Park Service and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service are designated to receive $270 million for ongoing programs.
