Mont Saint-Michel is a rocky tidal island and a commune in Normandy, France.
It was previously connected to the mainland via a tidal causeway. However, on 16 June 2006, the French prime minister and regional authorities announced a €164 million project to build a hydraulic dam using the waters of the river Couesnon and the tides to help remove the accumulated silt deposited by the rising tides, and to make Mont Saint-Michel an island again. It was projected to be completed by 2015. The construction of the dam began in 2009 and is now complete.
