The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the Department of the Interior, represented by the National Park Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, reevaluated alternatives to restore Everglades National Park (ENP) by redistributing and providing additional flows of water into the Park through U.S. 41, Tamiami Trail. After reviewing Congressional directives and targets, all previous reports, and previous and new alternatives and costs, the agencies recommended a plan consisting of two actions: 1) build a one-mile bridge in the project area's eastern segment and 2)raise the headwater stage constraint in the L-29 borrow Canal by 1 foot to 8.5 feet; which will require road mitigation on parts of U.S. 41 in the action area, located between S-333 on the west and S-334 on the east. This selected plan was called Alternative 3.2.2.a.
