The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has received $139 million in stimulus funding for projects in the Pittsburgh district. Most of the stimulus money will go toward updating aging reservoirs and navigation systems on the Monongahela River. $84 million of the funds will go specifically to the Charleroi locks replacement project. That money will help fund an existing contract to replace river walls at the Charleroi locks. The money was needed because funding problems arose when a trust fund that was funding half of the project began to experience financial difficulties.
