River Project Opens up a Two-Mile Mississippi Channel Connecting Two Dead Waterways

A groundbreaking ceremony is set for 3 p.m. Wednesday at the construction site, on Grey Cloud Island Drive South about a quarter mile southwest of Grey Cloud Trail South.

The $1.8 million project will connect two dead-end waterways, allowing river water to flow through and creating a new passageway for boaters. It also will construct a concrete-arch bridge structure.
