We are pleased to report that construction is well underway on the installation of a fish passage at 182nd Street, reconnecting river herring and other migratory fish access to spawning habitat in the freshwater sections of the river. The first phase of construction is located on the west side of the dam, where the fish passage will be situated. Dewatering the river to provide access to the dam for construction is the first phase of this work, currently underway.

Stay tuned for periodic progress reports on this exciting project, opening the way for fish to travel upstream and flourish
in the Bronx River.
