GALVESTON — On Monday, the city of Galveston’s Industrial Development Corp. will present a $250,000 check to Texas A&M University at Galveston, furthering progress on the Ike Dike coastal surge protection system.

The Ike Dike is a coastal barrier that would protect the Houston-Galveston region including Galveston Bay from hurricane storm surge. The project would extend the protection afforded by the existing seawall along the rest of Galveston Island and along the Bolivar Peninsula, with a 17-foot-high revetment near the beach or raising the coastal highways.
