      Brother’s Construction, Inc., acting on behalf of the bridge owner, Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will perform repairs of the southwest fender system of the Port Boulevard Bridge (Dodge Island Bridge) Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway MM: 1089.4 commencing March 1, 2021 with an estimated completion date of May 1, 2021. Work will occur Monday through Saturday from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
      The repairs will be performed from a barge spudded to the west of the fender system and outside of the navigable channel. The barge will remain in this location for the duration of the project and be properly lighted at night. The Tug Annie will be with the barge and may be reached by VHF radio on channel 9. A small assist vessel may at times, during work hours only, be tied off to the channel side face of the south west fender flare. Vessels are advised to transit the area with caution and maintain a no wake speed.

      Lake O flows adjusted to support Sediment Study

      https://www.saj.usace.army.mil/Media/News-Releases/Article/2510170/lake-o-flows-adjusted-to-support-sediment-study/

      The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Jacksonville District will make temporary deviation to the Lake Okeechobee release schedule this week to facilitate a study by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to develop methods to indirectly measure sediment transported from the lake to the estuaries.

      The deviation will allow 1,000 – 4,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) flow from structures for short periods of time during the day February 23 at the Moore Haven Lock and Dam (S-77) and February 24 at the Port Mayaca Lock and Dam (S-308).

      Prior to the tests, USACE will draw down the St. Lucie Canal (C-44) to minimize the potential for opening the St. Lucie Lock and Dam (S-80) during the test, however, there is still a possibility that the S-80 may be opened for a short period of time to accommodate the increased water resulting from the testing. The SFWMD will also evaluate conditions during testing to consider whether it is possible to use Dispersed Water Management projects such as the Caulkins Water Farm to further reduce the potential for opening S-80.

      “We are happy to assist the USGS and SFWMD in their effort to find ways to better understand the flow of sediment through the lake and into the estuaries,” said Col. Andrew Kelly, Jacksonville District commander. “It’s important to better understand the science about sediment transported from the lake to the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie Rivers.”

    • LNM: Dredging to Begin on Eastern Okeechobee Waterway

      Maintenance dredging along the OWW is expected to start by the end of February 2021 and be completed no later than the first week of July 2021. Our thanks to Specialist Erica Skolte for this notice.

       

      Jacksonville District to begin dredging Okeechobee Waterway near Jensen Beach, Stuart and Palm City, advises mariners 

      Jacksonville, Fla(Feb. 9, 2021) – The Jacksonville District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, will begin dredging sections of the Okeechobee Waterway (OWW) in the vicinity of Jensen Beach and Stuart (Reach 3) and Palm City (Reach 4) by the end of February 2021.

      Maintenance dredging along the OWW is expected to start by the end of February 2021 and be completed no later than the first week of July 2021. The project will include dredging approximately 42,000 cubic yards of material from Reach 3, and 30,000 cubic yards of material from Reach 4. Dredge material will be placed in a newly constructed Dredge Material Management Area (DMMA-07), located at the southern end of Reach 4, upland from the St. Lucie Canal Locks just south of the Florida Turnpike Bridge. 

      Reach 3 begins near Jensen Beach and travels west-southwest to just north of the Palm City Veterans Memorial Bridge. Reach 4 continues southward through Palm City and terminates at the St. Lucie Lock. See the attached map for details.

      Dredging operations will be undertaken in 12-hour shifts, seven days per week until completion. Unforeseeable delays in the schedule could result in dredging operations being re-scheduled to a 24-hours per day, seven days per week timeline to meet completion target. 

      The Jacksonville District requests that all boaters and residents exercise caution in the work areas and to steer clear of the marked floating pipeline within the OWW. Boaters and residents should also exercise caution for the dredge and transport barge while dredging operations are under way. Additionally, the public should anticipate project related activities in the vicinity of the St. Lucie Lock as the pipeline corridor runs along federal property near the park and campground leading to DMMA 07.

      The OWW maintenance dredging is being executed under a contract awarded to Cavache Inc., of Pompano Beach, Fla., in the amount of $3,082,230. The project is 100 percent federal funded.

The Dredge COMMODORE will begin 24 hour dredging operations, in the Intracoastal Waterway starting approximately February 3, 2021. The dredge will pump material directly through submerged pipeline to Jupiter Beach, south of the south Jetty at Jupiter Inlet. Operations in the vicinity of Jupiter Sound / Jupiter Inlet are estimated to be completed on April 30, 2021. Support equipment assisting the operations include tugboats, booster barge, pipelaying barge and survey/crew vessels. For further information, contact: James Towner at (561) 818-7785.
