During the week of March 1, the Gowanus Remediation Team continued dredging activities along the canal, north of Union Street. Dredging north of Union Street is expected to continue over the coming weeks. Once this phase of dredging is completed, crews will begin the removal of aging timber batter piles and timber dolphins north of the Union St Bridge. 

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 north of the Union Street Bridge remains ongoing. There is a high volume of project related maritime traffic. The Carroll Street Bridge will remain in the open position and Carroll Street will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic until further notice. 

Photos of construction activities are provided below.
