What's the holdup with the levee upgrades? Corps of Engineers still has not issued OK on it's own work~After three years of design work, construction is set to start in early 2012 on repairs and upgrades for 64 miles of flood control levees in Madison, St. Clair and Monroe counties. Trouble is, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers still has not issued its OK for the project's design, nor has the federal agency indicated when it will do so, according to Les Sterman, the chief engineer for the Southwestern Illinois Flood Prevention District Council, which met Wednesday morning in Collinsville. Part of the problem is the fact the corps is insisting on performing its own review, while also calling for an outside firm to conduct a second review, Sterman said.
