Abstract: The purpose of this Real Estate Plan is to address real estate issues associated with acquisition of real estate interests to construct the project evaluated in this General Reevaluation Report. The first two phases of the project have been completed; Phase I was completed in December 1987 and Phase II was completed in December 1994. The plan of action that was initially conceived, immediately after authorization, provided that Phase 3 of the Project would construct the Project navigation channel to the fully authorized depth of 55 feet from the Gulf of Mexico through the Port of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. However, due to constraints that result from the non-Federal sponsor’s desire to limit its responsibilities for OMRR&R, this General Reevaluation Report is examining only those reasonable alternatives that propose construction of the navigation channel up to a depth of 50 feet. The information contained herein is for planning purposes and may be subject to change as project design is refined during Project Engineering Design. A draft REP was prepared in November 2016 in support of the draft GRR. This Final REP incorporates information from a more detailed feasibility analysis, which includes a change to the Recommended Plan (from the plan that was presented in the draft GRR as the Tentatively Selected Plan (TSP)), analysis of training works, refinement of utility relocations, additional hydraulic modeling, as well as, resolution of comments received from both the public and other agency reviews, the Agency Technical Review, Independent External Peer Review, and review by the Vertical Team. The REP was written to the same level of detail as the GRR it supports.
