Dredging work at Mile Point, located on the St. Johns River near Naval Station Mayport, is nearing completion, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Jacksonville District said in its latest announcement.

The Mile Point area experienced limited navigation during ebb tide because of difficult cross-currents at the convergence of the river with the Intracoastal Waterway, USACE said.

This navigation improvement project will relocate and reconfigure the existing training wall, restore Great Marsh Island and create a flow improvement channel in Chicopit Bay.

The scheme will also help improve navigation on the St. Johns River, increasing commerce efficiencies. Added project benefits include restoring local, historic channel flow and increasing marsh habitat by up to 34 acres more than the mitigation requirement.
