The work includes replacement of wheels on the gates, steel repair, fender replacement, concrete repairs and painting. So far, the contractor has dewatered the Fairhaven gate and continues removing sediment from the floor of the gate pocket by using a combination of vacuum truck, clamshell bucket and hand shoveling to remove sediment. The gates remain functional and the maintenance project should be completed by mid-July. (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers photo)
