Dismal Swamp Canal Closed - UPDATE

Date Posted: Jun 02, 2017

 6/2/17: Mariners are advised that the U.S. Army Corps of Dregde MURDEN will be conducting dredging operations in the Dismal Swamp Canal (Route 2) of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, Mile 10 to 10.6. Dredging operations are scheduled from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday June 16, 2017 through Thursday June 22, 2017.   

 

 5/8/17: NORFOLK, Va. -- Officials at the Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have announced a goal of opening the Dismal Swamp Canal to its full 6-foot depth this summer before the winter snow birds head south.  

 The canal, which was closed due to extensive damage from Hurricane Matthew in October, has ongoing debris and tree removal, and investigations of shoaling at many locations in the canal. Shoaling in the canal has reduced the depth to as little 1 foot in areas.

Norfolk District engineers are using recent surveys of the canal to plot the 22 miles of the canal and the 3 miles of the feeder ditch. The data will be used to check for additional shoals and other obstructions.   Crews are currently dredging the canal at the Feeder Ditch using information from the canal survey.  They will then perform additional dredging at Turners Cut, south of the South Mills Lock, this summer.  The Norfolk District is also working with the Willington District to remove a small shoal in the Deep Creek Channel.

 District engineers project the canal work at the Feeder Ditch work to take the longest; work there will be complete by late-June.

 After canal repairs are completed, district engineers will evaluate whether to open the canal at a restricted depth until the 6-foot depth is achieved. 

 At Lake Drummond and the Feeder Ditch, crews have repaired damaged buildings.  Additional work at Lake Drummond included repairs on the floating docks, roadway washout and the boat tram.  Damaged screens on picnic porches will be repaired in the winter.

 Work on the Deep Creek Locks gates, which was scheduled before the storm, is progressing. Work on replacing the water control valves and deteriorated steel is ongoing and will be completed next week.  Final work and painting will then be done and the gates will be placed back into the lock in June.
