Engineers Say Damage To James A. Gifford Causeway Is Significant

Damage to County causeways from the wind storm of May 4th has been assessed by engineers, and County Council have approved repairs to both the James A. Gifford Causeway and the Gannon’s Narrows Causeway.

According to a county press release, staff are in the process of working with local approval authorities to coordinate the exact timing of the work so as not to disturb fish spawning habitat.

While the damage is significant from the storm, the public is advised that both causeways are safe to travel.

“County Council has made the decision to approve the recommended work on both causeways to ensure continued use of these important vehicular routes in the County,” says Warden Joe Taylor. “We will continue to ensure the public is made aware of the timing and status of the work in the coming weeks.”
