Welcome to the Coastal Texas Project Website

Thank you for visiting the new Coastal Texas Project website! After Congressional authorization as part of the Water Resources Development Act of 2022, the Coastal Texas Project website was created to support the transition of the Coastal Texas Program from the study phase into design and construction. Importantly, this website will serve as the single location for project information moving forward, replacing the prior webpage which was created for the study phase of the project.

How to Navigate the Coastal Texas Project Website

The purpose of this website is to provide you with the information and resources you need to stay informed about the Coastal Texas Project as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Gulf Coast Protection District, and the Texas General Land Office move forward with further study and environmental evaluation, design efforts, and future construction activities.

Each page within this site was created to keep the public, decision makers, and other stakeholders updated on the status of the Coastal Texas Project.

About the Project

The Coastal Texas Project includes a combination of coastal storm risk management and ecosystem restoration projects that function as a system to reduce the risk of coastal storm surge damages to coastal communities and to restore degraded coastal ecosystems.

On this page you can learn about the Galveston Bay Storm Surge Barrier System, Coastwide Ecosystem Restoration Plan, and the South Padre Island Beach Nourishment Project.

You can also find an in-depth overview of the Coastal Texas Project, the project schedule, costs, and benefits and a link to the Coastal Texas Story Map.

Media Resources

This page includes several media resources like press releases and media fact sheets as well as upcoming and previous press outreach initiatives.

On this page, you will also find media contact information for each of the project partners.

Project renderings are also available for viewing and download on this page.

Documents for Download

This page includes a number of documents available for download to provide more detailed information on the Coastal Texas Project.

Types of documents include the Coastal Texas Brochure, the Coastal Texas Chief’s Report, as well as the concluding documents from the study phase, specifically the Coastal Texas Study Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement.
