The pounding Galveston Island's famed seawall received at the hands of Hurricane Ike is getting the attention of the Army Corp of Engineers.
They're requesting a multi-million dollar effort to shore-up the structure.
Ike pounded the seawall for twelve hours with waves and debris.
Army engineers say the 105-year-old barrier maintained it's structural integrity, but needs major repair.
Right now work is underway to replenish Galveston's 51 block stretch of gulf front with more than 400 thousand cubic yards of sand.
