The County of Dukes County
Little Bridge Dredging Underway
The County of Dukes County, in partnership with the Town of Oak Bluffs, has begun the important emergency dredging project at the Little Bridge.  The County received an emergency grant from the State for $14,000 and the County added $16,000 of its own funds.  Oak Bluffs Shellfish Warden contributed $5,000 and the Town of Oak Bluffs authorized another $20,000.  This total of $55,000 will allow us to dredge the channel to six feet below mean low level water, and represents over 6,000 cubic yards of spoils being removed.
