Moving fish in Holland Marsh Canal

Photos by Barry Wallace
Workers are seen in the Holland Marsh retrieving and moving fish from the old canal to the new canal.   Relocating and widening of the  28 km.-canal will take at least five years to complete and cost $26.4 million.   An additional $57.5 million will be spent on municipal bridges and Hwy. 400 structures.   The project will enable the huge market-garden vegetable resource to withstand a 100-year weather event.   It will also increase the saftey of traffic along roads bordering the marsh.   Many people have perished over the years when their vehicles plunged into the canal.

Please comment if you wish.
