Work at Wreck Pond presses forward. The knife gate and stop logs located at the pond end of the culvert have been installed, culvert pieces continue to be delivered, and wooden piles are being driven, with Simpson and Brown anticipating having 430 feet of the culvert completed by March 15.
Starting on that same date a certified bird monitor will be onsite to look for piping plovers at the project site. These little shorebirds are state endangered and federally threatened, and thus it is important to not disturb their nesting grounds during their breeding and nesting season.
With a work extension granted to April 7th, Simpson and Brown are hopeful they will be able to reach 480’ before demobilizing for the summer.
