Fair Landing, Arkansas, Nov. 12, 2014 – Northbound commerce with as many as 49 barges moved through the restricted portion of the river at Fair Landing during daylight hours. This helps speed the clearing of the daily queue and reduces the wait time for southbound vessels. Work is also proceeding well in the narrowest reach of the restricted area and the Corps expects normal, unrestricted one-way traffic to resume after Monday, November 17, when the mat sinking unit completes its work in the narrow section and moves to a wider section of Fair Landing.

Vicksburg, Miss……The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Vicksburg District’s work on the Steel Bayou Drainage Structure Outlet Channel Repair Project near the Mississippi Highway 465 bridge is approximately 88 percent complete.  

Work was delayed because the contractor was unable to move upstream of Highway 465 to complete rock work due to high stages on the Mississippi River.  Remaining efforts include stone placement upstream of the bridge and around top bank of the bridge and additional bank paving downstream.  Approximately 200,000 tons of rock have been placed to date with 25,000 tons remaining to be placed.  Work resumed on November 1, 2014.
