MANSON BEGINS WORK AT MILE POINT

In April, Manson Construction Company began dredging a flow improvement channel in Chicopit Bay within the Mile Point area on the St. Johns River in Florida.

Mile Point is where the St. Johns River and the ICW meet, which results in different cross-currents at ebb tide. Once Manson completes the improvement channel, the project will cut off part of the existing waterway. The contrac-tor began work on the Mile Point Training Wall Reconfiguration Project in February.
