VIDEO: Dredging the Little River

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control has just released a video about the Little River dredging scheme, located near Dover, from the Route 9/Bayside Drive bridge in Little Creek.

This dredging program, undertaken by Southwind Construction of Evansville, Ind., aims to help stimulate the local economy and support public safety by enhancing boater access and improving navigation at low tides in the Little River.

The channel is approximately 12,400 feet long and is being dredged to widths of 40 feet in the river portion and 60 feet in the Delaware Bay portion, and to a depth of 5 feet at average low tide.

The Little River was last dredged by the state in 1981-1982.
