    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District proposes to construct the Boston Bar Bi-Op Project as part of its commitment to comply with Endangered Species Act requirements as part of our operation of the Regulating Works Project. The proposed action includes the removal of three existing dikes, notching an existing pile dike, construction of a new side channel enhancement dike (SCED), and creation of sandbar habitat adjacent to Boston Bar using dredge disposal material from future channel maintenance dredging that would occur within the immediate vicinity. Fill material would include approximately 2,114 cubic yards of quarry run limestone consisting of graded “A” stone for the new SCED and the removal of over 58,000 cubic yards of rock for removal and notching of the existing dikes. Boston Bar is located along the left descending bank of the Middle Mississippi River between River Miles 7.6 and 10.2, in Alexander County, Illinois, approximately 1.5 miles northwest of Cairo, Illinois, and 22.5 miles southeast of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
