The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, has announced that their contractor, Newt Marine Service, from Dubuque, Iowa, last week started the final phase of an island restoration project.

Construction work on this restoration scheme, located by Harpers Slough, near Lynxville, Wisconsin, is expected to finish this summer, USACE said.

The project is a part of the Upper Mississippi River Restoration Program, an environmental restoration program devoted to restoring habitat along the Mississippi River. The program is a multi-agency, multi-district plan that restores aquatic habit along the river.

“Caution should be used while navigating near the construction site since heavy equipment may be used for the construction activities,” USACE said in its announcement.

Established in 1986, the Corps of Engineers has restored more than 45,000 acres, or 62 square miles, of river and floodplain habitat within the St. Paul District.
