Langley Air Force Base is seeking more than $5 million in federal funds to protect it against storm surges that have caused massive damage in past years.
A report prepared by Langley says a $3.5 million shoreline-stabilization program would involve building a protective stone barricade, grading the shoreline and adding native vegetation. The project also would include putting hard stabilization under aircraft takeoff and landing zone.
The second project would be a $2 million, 3,000-foot sea wall, to replace the current one built in 1931.
Langley is asking its congressional delegation to back federal funding for the base.
