Ash Creek Channel Dredging in March

Dredging of the channel to the South Benson Marina will begin the first or second week of March.  The Town of Fairfield has hired Julian Construction as their contractor.  The project will finish by the end of March.  Most of the dredging will be conducted from the Fairfield side, but there will be a machine on the the Bridgeport side.  It will not be located near the plantings.
