The flow of the Charles River was stopped yesterday by the closing of the dam that has been under construction for several months near the Craigie Bridge. The cutting off of the river channel is to allow the construction of the main section of the permanent dam and roadway. It will be fully a year from now before the completion of the entire work can be observed, for after the dam is finished a roadway 100 feet wide is to be built along its top, serving as a permanent substitute for the old Craigie Bridge. The shutting off of the water will benefit rowing conditions, since the high water will increase the number of long stretches, and there will be no apparent current.
