Blasting on Hwy 53 Relocation between Eveleth and Virginia--
Yesterday we blasted a flat notch in the cliff where we will put the east pier of the new bridge. Next we will send a barge over to the new notch to take the final rock samples where the east pier will be constructed. . We have worked with the Corps of Engineers, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and the Department of Health to protect the work area with positive barriers to contain any sediment from the rock entering the water (big yellow floating silt curtains).
