Workers work on Grand Canal at Washington Blvd.

The City is completing the $600,000 project of repairing the culverts and tidal gate foundations at Washington Blvd. They have been working on this project since late June.

The culverts are the tidal gate pipes under Washington Blvd. The water is walled off while this work is completed. The culverts were cleaned, repaired and will now be relined. This is a critical phase of the work.

What the photo shows is the removal of the coffer dam that had been in place to keep the culverts dry while they did the relining.
