LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Town Branch Fund has announced an agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to conduct studies to examine environmental and site conditions of the future Town Branch Park.

The studies will monitor water flow to provide guidance on the stream expansion, location for day lighting and restoration, gather topographical and geotechnical data to be used for the next phase of design, and assess environmental conditions to plan for future park use and permitting.
