Dexter, resident engineer for the Corps of Army Engineers on "the $17,000,000 Cumberland-Ridgeley flood control project, said work on the West Side flood levee is underway. The levee is one of several planned during the current contract being constructed by the E. J. Albrecht- Company, of Chicago. Fill for the.earth levee is being hauled over the old Blue Bridge, which was taken out of service recently when, the new interstate bridge was opened. The old span is to be removed during the course of the work on the Section I of Potomac River Channel Improvement. Ttie contractor this week started laying 42 and 48-inch combined sewer pipes in East Ridgeley, near the site of the future pumping station. Work has also started on a sluice gate at Lehigh Street, on the West Side for a conduit which will pass through the new levee. Also started was forming work for the foundation of the 600-foot Ridgeley flood wall, at the upstream end of the project in West Virginia. The contractor is expected to begin pouring concrete for the flood- wall soon. Completed is the placing of sheet piling cut-off across the Western Maryland yards in Ridgeley. The interlocking steel piling has been driven to within a few inches of the railroad ties, and is designed to prevent flood water from running in back of the flood wall. Sand bags would also be piled on top ol the piling hi case high water threatened. Similar cut-off piling has been driven at the approaches to the Western Maryland bridges on the Potomac River. There has been no lost time due to accidents, nor any property damage serious enough to report, since the work began on June 6. When the Mackinac Straits Bridge between Michigan's upper and lower peninsulas is completed; in 1957, it will have a suspension span rated as the longest in the world. Good Democrat STAFFORD, Va.
