Arizona’s Senate delegation is pushing for federal funds to complete the Rio de Flag flood control project.

 

Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Martha McSally both signed a letter to the Army Corps of Engineers encouraging that the project receive full funding during the current fiscal year.

 

The letter notes that completion of a design for the Rio de Flag flood control project is expected by May, and that the Army Corps of Engineers has received $30 million for feasibility studies, design and phase one construction.

 

It adds that the project will involve property acquisitions, utility relocations and moving a rail bridge.
