River Levee Reconstruction Underway

Whinnery Construction of Lake City has rerouted the flow of the Arkansas River west of the Raynolds Avenue Bridge as levee reconstruction is underway. A block wall along the flood control dike was undermined during flooding and runoff last May and June. The $147,000 project should be completed within several weeks. The Federal Emergency Management Agency will reimburse Fremont County for 75% of the cost.
