LNM: GIWW Dredging, FL Statute Miles 309-339, Northern Gulf
This dredge project is occurring in a narrow portion of the Waterway’s path through East Bay and south to Lake Wimico. In many sections of this 30-mile stretch, there is very little room to maneuver around dredge vessels due to shallow waters on both sides of the GIWW channel.
