Good news on The Dip
Good news for Southern Yacht Club and
its members: The Dip is about to be fixed. Construction starts Monday March 5
and will last about eight months.
Be on the lookout for detours as you
make the turn over the levee while construction is in progress, shifting
traffic in both directions to one side of West Roadway or the other. The
project will replace the old drainage and utilities under the street, while the
sump pump that has drained The Dip the past year will remain in place during
construction. The Flood Protection Authority—East of the Orleans Levee District
is funding the street repair project.
This should eliminate the uncertainty
of whether you can make it to the club for your favorite delicacies from Chef
James or your favorite beverages at the 1849 Bar! See you at the club.
