BAY/WALTON COUNTIES- The U. S. Coast Guard's Waterways Management Office says that’s a conservative estimate, and the waterway could be open sooner.
The original estimate had it reopening Monday, but the dredge has had a couple of minor mechanical problems with its water pump and hydraulic line.
A section of the ICW near the Bay Walton County lines had to be closed earlier this month when extremely heavy rains caused a dike to collapse blocking the waterway to all marine traffic.
The Waterway Canal is expected to reopen July 24th.
