Steel Bayou Channel Repair Progresses

The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers Vicksburg District’s work on the Steel Bayou Drainage Structure Outlet Channel Repair Project near the Mississippi Highway 465 bridge is approximately 88 percent complete.

Work was delayed because the contractor was unable to move upstream of Highway 465 to complete rock work due to high stages on the Mississippi River. Remaining efforts include stone placement upstream of the bridge and around top bank of the bridge and additional bank paving downstream.

Approximately 200,000 tons of rock have been placed to date with 25,000 tons remaining to be placed. Work resumed on November 1, 2014.

The work was necessary to repair a scour hole that developed downstream of the bridge. The project is expected to be completed by the end of November 2014.

During the construction of the project, there will be no boating or fishing along the channel from the Steel Bayou Control Structure to the Yazoo River.
