Geotechnical Investigation US 51 Bridge Cairo IL

Notice Number: 206894/2024-006
Date: 06/01/2024 04:00 thru 09/30/2024 04:00

Fugro and Terracon will be conducting geotechnical sampling operations from the EBI Lift Boat Donald Olsen just upstream of the Cairo Highway Bridge (US-60/US-51) at approximately Ohio River Mile 980. The equipment will not impede navigation traffic, and will leave an approximately 800 foot wide navigable channel along the sailing line at all times. The operations will be conducted from approximately June 01 to September 30 2024, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. While operations are conducted, the Lift Boat will be jacked up to be elevated out of the water such that it will be unable to move from it’s location, so mariners must exercise caution when passing because the vessel will not be mobile. The Donald Olsen will monitor Marine Channels 13 and 16.
