PN 15 – 14A ROCK REMOVAL DREDGING – POSTPONED UPPER MISSISSIPPI RIVER, MILE 46 – 38

The start of rock removal dredging is postponed due to a rising river forecast that exceeds 15-ft on the Cape Girardeau gage. A 10 day notice will be provided once a revised start date has been determined. The original notice is provided below for reference only.

  1. Rock removal dredging is planned to start on or about 20 November, contingent upon a Cape Girardeau gage of 15-ft and a falling river forecast. Rock removal dredging will stop when Cape Girardeau gage is above 15-ft.
  2. USACE contractor, Massman Construction, will be working with two separate floating plants, consisting of barge mounted excavators between miles 46 and 38 UMR.
  3. Massman Construction will be working from 07:00 to 19:00 hours, 7 days a week.
  4. During working hours passing traffic will be initially limited to Tows with a maximum of 15 barges upstream and downstream. Tows will be required to keep a safe passing distance of 150-ft between working equipment. This requirement will change as the contractor works at various locations, updates will be provided by future amendments.
  5. Safe passage arrangements can be made by calling Massman Construction’s contact vessel, MV Keith Jacobsen, on VHF
    channel 13, prior to transiting the area.
  6. For additional information regarding Rock Removal floating plant activity, please contact the Area Engineer, Jeff Derrick at 573-204-7770. For overall Project information, please contact Project Manager Mike Rodgers, 314-331-8215.
