Progress Update, Week of February 15, 2021

During the week of February 15, the project team continued dredging activities along the canal, north of Union Street. Dredging north of Union Street is expected to continue over the coming weeks. Please note, no work was performed on Friday February 12 or Monday February 15, in observance of President’s Day.

The dredged material is loaded from smaller “mini” hopper barges that can navigate the narrow canal to the transloading area at Huntington Street. The dredged material is then dewatered and transloaded to larger barges and shipped across New York Harbor to the dredged material processing facility in New Jersey.

Dredging between the Carroll Street Bridge and the Union Street Bridge remains ongoing. Due to the high volume of project related maritime traffic, the Carroll Street Bridge will remain in the open position from 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM Monday through Friday to accommodate active construction. During this timeframe, Carroll Street will remain closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic between Bond Street and Nevins Street until further notice.

Photos of construction activities are provided below.
