Woodland Channel Construction

Construction of the new navigation channel under Woodland Avenue is progressing. The contractor has the coffer dam installed and is dewatering to keep the excavation as dry as possible. Below are some pictures of the ongoing excavation. One shows a bulldozer moving material underneath the existing bridge. Within the next week or two the contractor is planning to begin setting the 3-sided box culvert which will begin to define the new navigation channel. The project is anticipated to be open to boat traffic ahead of the fishing opener in May.
