The Parkway will constitute an alternation of the existing Dallas Floodway, a USACE federally authorized civil works project that requires Title 33 United States Code, Section 408 (Section 408) compliance. The proposed Parkway consists of a multi-lane transportation project constructed on earthen embankments generally aligned along the East Levee within the Dallas Floodway.

Those agencies in addition to the City of Dallas are the project's sponsors. This ROD addresses the USACE Section 408 Permission.
