TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Terre Haute Parks Department removed the boat docks at Fairbanks Park from the Wabash River on Thursday morning. 

Crews spent the better part of the morning fishing out the four different sections of the docks. 

They used a backhoe and chain to get the job done. 

By doing it themselves, the parks department saved the city about $5,000. 

Ice flows on the Wabash River damaged parts of the dock. 

Some sections recovered will be placed in the lake at the Maple Avenue City Park. 

The rest will be sold to the public.

The new dock will be one the parks department can remove from the winter every winter.
