This Engineering project consists of surveying, permitting, and design of a maintenance dredge project for the Hayward Waterway canal system, which includes the main channel and the interior canals. This project has been initiated by request of the citizens of the Hayward Waterway MSBU. Funding for the dredging of the access channel and main canal is through WCIND grant funding. The finger channels have been removed from this scope due to MSBU funding constraints and are being planned for a future project. The purpose is to restore depth and width, providing safe navigation to and from the public boat ramp. This canal / channel system has a history of maintenance dredging of which last occurred in 2017. Dredging is projected to go out to bid late summer of 2021.
Project LocationHayward Waterway System, El Jobean, Hayward canal.
Project ImpactsThis project will result in improved access between the El. Jobean boat ramp and the Myakka River.
This dredging project was awarded by the county to Sea and Shoreline Inc and the PO has been issued. The contractor and the county held a pre-construction meeting and agreed to a notice to proceed date of 6-6-22. At that time SSI will begin to mobilize on to the project. An upland spoil site will be set up on the county owned ROW at the end of Armada Rd adjoining the Schofield water way or at an alternate lot along the waterway that the contractor secures through a private agreement. Once site is complete the contractor will begin dredging. Usually within days of mobilizing in. Sea &Shoreline recently experienced a delay and will now be mobilizing in on 7-5-22. County staff has reminded the contractor of contract time and requirements.
