While new track is installed in the currently drained Rivers of America, it seems refurbishment has begun on Tom Sawyer Island.

Harper’s Mill, which sits on the edge of Rivers of America, is now surrounded by scaffolding.

We saw five workers at the mill today. In the drained river were stacks of metal rods.

For now, it just looked like they were installing and securing the scaffolding.

Rivers of America has been completely drained for about a month.

Further down the river, we saw a gap in the riverboat track, and materials to side.

Tom Sawyer Island and the Liberty Square Riverboat are both currently closed for refurbishment, and will not reopen until March. Are you excited to get back to exploring the caves and forts on the island? Let us know in the comments.
