Hurricane protection barriers are proposed for the Galveston Bay area. A separate model indicated that two barrier schemes would protect upstream areas - the plan 2 alpha barrier was located behind the gulf beaches and the plan 2 gamma barrier crossed Galveston Bay 9 mi upstream. Both schemes provide gated navigation openings across channel and gated tidal passage of sufficient capacity, located to maintain existing conditions with respect to tides, currents, salinities, and dispersion patterns.
