Rock re­moval on river to start soon

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT - Com­piled from wire re­ports

Work to ex­plode bargeim­ped­ing rock pin­na­cles in the Mis­sis­sippi River could be­gin as early as next week, about a mon­t­hand-a-half ear­lier than first pro­jected. But con­cern re­mains that with­out ad­di­tional water, barge traf­fic on the river is in jeop­ardy. U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., and two river in­dus­try trade groups said Tues­day they were in­formed by the Army Corps of Engi­neers that blast­ing could start next week, although it wasn’t clear which day it would start.
