Flood Project Bypass work moves ahead

UPDATED Friday July 11, 2014

Work on the Flood Project Dry Bypass continues as the contractor for the US Army Corps of Engineers, Nordic Industries, has largely completed the removal and off-haul of thousands of cubic yards of soil to create the future bypass channel. Installation of sheet pile for the bypass outlet, south of the First Street Bridge, is now underway. Drivers are cautioned that the speed limit on McKinstry Street, which passes through the work zone, has been lowered to 25mph to protect workers. Caution should be used driving through the area as equipment and workers periodically cross McKinstry. In early August, McKinstry Street will be closed to all traffic to allow excavation and reconstruction of the roadway. This closure is planned to last 45 working days.
