Bank Grading Unit paves way for commerce, safety
IN THE PHOTO, Memphis District Commander Col. Zachary Miller recently visited Island 68, a project site in Arkansas, where he met with the district’s hardworking Bank Grading Unit and reviewed progress made at the site thus far. The equipment used to ‘grade’ the river bank is a vintage 1949 barge mounted Bucyrus-Erie dragline with a 183 foot boom and a 15 cubic yard bucket. Additional earthmoving capacity is provided by a compliment of bulldozers. (USACE Photo/Jessica Haas)
