Sat-map-Menemsha

Martha’s Vineyard Times: The Menemsha Channel dredge project [on Martha’s Vineyard] came to a grinding halt Monday [Feb. 1] when the Army Corps of Engineers shut down the $2.2 million project in order to comply with the conditions of a permit issued by the Massachusetts Department of Marine Fisheries (DMF), which stipulated that work had to stop on Jan. 31 to allow for the migration of winter flounder.

It is the latest in a long series of delays for a project that was initially scheduled to be completed last year.
