J.F. Brennan Company, Inc. has begun work on a significant dredging project along the Providence River, reports the Providence Foundation.

The project is being done jointly by the City of Providence, the Nature Conservancy, the Coastal Resources Management Council, 195 Redevelopment District Commission, the Providence Foundation and the WaterFire.

Under the project, the Woonasquatucket and Providence Rivers will be dredged from the Amtrak bridge under the Providence Place Mall through Waterplace Park and downtown to the Crawford Street Bridge.

Most of the material to be removed during the scheme is road sand that washed down storm drains and into the river over the past 25 years.

The project – paid for by the Clean Water and Green Economy Bond approved by Rhode Island voters in 2018 – will cost about $5 million.

If all goes according to plan, the project will be completed by the end of the year.
