The Trinity River Vision project so far has received $43.6 million in federal funding, most of it in the form of earmarks by Rep. Kay Granger (R-Fort Worth), and has spent $16 million of that on flood control and urban renewal work. However, the Republican-led House banned earmarks for this fiscal year, with the Democratic-led Senate following suit, and the fate of earmarks – money that lawmakers direct federal agencies to use for specific purposes, usually local projects – remains in doubt.Just for 2011, the Trinity River Vision project is seeking an additional $43.2 million to continue working on the flood control aspect – the bypass channel and valley storage - and $17 million for the Main Street and Henderson Street bridges that are to be built over the bypass channel.

Meanwhile, the Army Corps of Engineers completed its first dirt project north of the river about nine months ago and is getting close to finishing its second dirt project south of the river, Granger said. The Corps has moved about 400,000 cubic yards of dirt and has about 150,000 more to move.
When the work is completed, the Corps will have moved more than 1 million pounds of dirt.
The dirt project south of the river will be finished in the next six months, Granger said.
