Little Sluice today after the rocks were reduced. Originally it was estimated that 20 rocks would need to be reduced. In August the estimate was revised to 12. Only 4 rocks were reduced in Little Sluice. 2 others were reduced after Little Sluice on the left side that were not in the traveled way. Courtesy photo
