Sunflower weir project gets closer to reality
At a public meeting of all participating stakeholders in the long planned Sunflower River Weir Project, Dr. Dean Pennington announced that the winning bid opened Wednesday, was submitted by Anderson Contracting LLC for $232,550.
After years of planning, the project is designed to elevate the average level of the Sunflower River through public areas from State Street (Highway 161) to the Northwest end of Downtown Clarksdale by three feet and, in places, widen the river by 15 feet.
This project is expected to create economic development opportunities with the inclusion of a water amenity in the Downtown Entertainment District while improving environmental conditions.
