On Jan. 1, the promenade at the Riverfront Plaza is supposed to be closed because of the eagles. Does this mean the work on the Bowersock Dam will be shut down until eagle season is over? Why close the promenade and stop the dam work when lakes and rivers are not iced over?
City Manager Mike Wildgen said: "Review of work restrictions related to eagles was part of the Corps of Engineers permit for the work on the dam. No work stoppage requirements were placed on the dam repair permit by the Corps. The permit is good until December 2002."
