Re:  Princeton Dam Repair Update

Our contractor, Janke Construction, spent time this week preparing the site for the pending construction.  I understand that they mobilized some of their large equipment, installed their temporary bridge over the lock channel, and placed the timber matting to protect Lock Road.  They will not be working again until after the Thanksgiving weekend…and then only if water levels in the Fox River and weather allows.  The overall project schedule includes a seasonal shutdown with completion by late November 2020.  Please reach out to me if you have any questions.  Know that I will provide updates as appropriate.
