Document Description
The District and the United State Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) (Federal Sponsor) are proposing a spillway cut to widen the Success Dam Emergency Spillway and to realign a portion of an existing road (Worth Drive/ Avenue 146) from the spillway to a bench on the right abutment of the spillway. The spillway would be widened from 200 to 365 feet by blasting and removing the rock forming the right abutment during Project construction. A bench for the road would be blasted and excavated as part of the cut on the right abutment. Rock from the abutment would be used for the new roadbed and stockpiled for later construction phases.
