GREAT NEWS – dredging has restarted! On Sunday, the dredging began in the River at STA 73+50 to make their way back out into the Gulf.
As of today (Fri 4/08), they’re about 900 feet from reaching STA 97+00, which is the end of the project. Although this may be a boy-who-cried-wolf situation, there’s a good chance they’ll reach the end of the project by this SUN 04/10.
As we reach the last project station, remember, the project is still not complete. We will be performing final surveys on Mon to determine where the Contractor may need to go to clean up some siltation along the length of the river.
- Boaters please stay clear of the dredge pipeline, floating barges, and the Contractor’s other equipment to allow them to complete the project safely.
