Burnt Store Isles Perimeter Channel Dredge Project Update

The City of Punta Gorda contractor, Brance Diversified, has begun the maintenance dredging of the perimeter channel in the Burnt Store Isles subdivision (work will occur seven days a week as weather and equipment operation permit). The dredge is near the Macedonia Drive/San Massimo Drive Basin and will progress north along the perimeter channel to the completion point at Terin Court. Boaters should expect navigational delays and need to exercise caution in the vicinity of the work and may contact the company workers through channel 78 on the VHF radio. The dredge will be located in the perimeter channel and will have up to 4,000 feet of 12 inch discharge pipe leading to the spoil locations. The spoil will be discharged directly into the canal system as required by the State/Federal permits.

The current spoil location will be the basin between Macedonia Drive and San Massimo Drive which will be blocked by turbidity screens. Boaters should contact Joost Derijk (952-999-3122), Bryant Smith (352-283-5882), or Seth Mayhall (337-793-6740) to schedule their exit and reentry through the work area.

Short Range Schedule of dredge areas:

Dredging is complete in this area: 5016-5068 San Massimo Drive.

July 15 through August 18, 2017; 513-739 Macedonia Drive.
