The James River Outdoor Coalition will be working on a couple of projects at the 14th Street takeout Saturday September 25 starting at 10 a.m. They will put some lattice around the portajohn and prepare a concrete walkway to the first landing. The 14th Street takeout is just inside the floodwall on the north bank of the river east of the 14th Street (Mayo) Bridge.
With the low water, JROC volunteers were recently able to stack up rocks and added 600 lbs of Quickrete to create a new lower step at the stairs to the river. This is a big improvement over the steep drop off and sharp rocks that were previously exposed, according to JROC president Chris Hull.
