  • Missouri River navigation support actions by the Kansas City District

    The Kansas City District received significant funds to make repairs to river training structures on the Missouri River damaged over the years culminating in the floods of 2019. The funds will allow USACE to repair structures of the Bank Stabilization and Navigation Project, known in short as the BSNP, that provide for the self-scouring ability of the Missouri River as well as structures that stabilize the channel of the Missouri River.
