Based on daily reports, the following metrics have been calculated:
LF (Linear Feet) = 7,740 (79.8% of 9,700)
CY (Cubic Yards) = 357,261 (93.1% of 383,650) - Total volume includes original CY of 362,163 + 21,847 CY of additional material.
Rigid has relocated their dredge to the south end of the river, as they work to arrive back at the mouth of the river and out into the Gulf of Mexico. There were two days this week (02/03 and 02/04) where high winds did not allow for dredging, but have been able to dredge almost continuously since that time.
Currently at STA. 76+50, Rigid has approximately 2,050 feet to reach the south end of the project, STA. 97+00. Maintaining their average of 1250 LF per week, they may be able to reach STA. 97+00, which is the southern end of the project by the end of February 2022.
The County will issue a change order for the additional material.
