(July 13, 2022 Red Wing, Minn.) – Ole Miss Marina will start dredging at Colvill Park beginning Friday, July 15. There will be limited access to the boat ramp during this time. Boaters may need to wait while barges are unloaded; however, crews will attempt to keep one lane of the ramp open. The work is expected to be completed in 3 weeks, depending on the amount of material that will need to be dredged.
This dredging work will occur Monday through Friday, limiting access during that time; however, no restrictions are expected on Saturday and Sunday. Signs will be in place. Boaters are encouraged to avoid this area.
City crews appreciate the cooperation and patience of neighbors, boaters, drivers and pedestrians during this time of inconvenience. Motorists are encouraged to stay alert and drive carefully through all work zones and use alternate routes whenever possible.
