Since mid-April, Florida Dredge and Dock (FDD) has been busy dredging a portion of the Banana River, known as “Cut 13”.
Cut 13 begins just North of the bridge where 528 (the Bee Line) crosses Banana River and extends north approximately 14,000ft.
FDD is also dredging a small area of the Canaveral Barge Canal just north of 528 and immediately West of the Canaveral Locks, as well as a small area of Kar’s Park access channel, which intersects Cut 13 approximately 9,400ft north of the Canaveral Barge Canal.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, has just announced that an additional day of dredging will occur along Canaveral Lock’s west approach wall requiring the lock to be closed on Monday, May 1st 2017, from 07:00 AM to 11:00 AM and 1200 PM to 4:00 PM .
According to USACE, this dredging project is to be completed until 1 September 2017.
