During the week of April 15, 2024, the contractor continued excavation and stabilization of the new bank slope. In order to stabilize the streambank, the contractor began installing round rock along the river slope and riverbed. The contractor has taken the necessary precautions to stabilize the streambank and provide proper erosion control measures prior to beginning the excavation and earth moving construction activities.  They began excavation at the west end and work east. You may see a second crew out working on the streambank stabilization, this was decided to help expedite the project due to the numerous weather delays.

During the week of April 22, 2024, the contractor will continue excavation and stabilization of the new bank slope.

Please remember these dates are dependent on suitable weather.
