GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Memorial Day weekend is expected to attract plenty of boat traffic to the Fox River in Green Bay.

And because of a dredging project underway, authorities are encouraging boaters to treat the river like a construction zone.

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources conservation warden Darren Kuhn says with recreational boaters, to fishermen to the maritime industry, the Fox River can be a busy place. And, it’s even much more so with the PCB clean-up project and the bid red barges that dot the river.

Kuhn tells WLUK-TV (https://bit.ly/1XzWKcO ) there are submerged pipes, including those floating just below the surface and other on the bottom of the river. Buoys mark miles of orange pipe running in the water, along the banks. The DNR says the fine for going too fast in the construction zone starts around $200.
