Milburnie Dam Demolition

The Milburnie Dam, a stone and concrete structure built more than a century ago to harness the Neuse River for power and later became the site of countless picnics and gatherings, is coming down to restore a six-mile stretch of the river to its natural state.

Workers began chipping and clawing at the top of the dam, beginning a measure demolition process that will take two or three months to complete.

The company that is doing the demolition and restoration–Restoration Systems LLC has a website here.
