Corps of Engineers Dredging Continues in Rochester Harbor

Posted on June 9, 2016

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District began dredging at Rochester Harbor on May 17 and will continue through mid-June.

As part of the two-year, $1,722,500 contract awarded to Luedtke Engineering Co., of Frankfort, Michigan, 210,000 cubic yards of sediment will be dredged from the federal navigation channel this year.

The contractor started working in the lower channel between the piers. Once finished with the lower channel, the project will move to the upper river in the area of the EssRoc dock and work back down the Genesee River.

“Every day I’m working to improve our region’s transportation infrastructure and dredging our harbors has been a critical component of my efforts for years,” said U.S. Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-25th Dist. “Fixing and maintaining our infrastructure is an investment in our economy. The Rochester Harbor helps drive job creation and construction projects across Monroe County, importing $10 million worth of goods every single year. Performing proper maintenance will help ensure this harbor can continue its operations and support economic growth across western New York.”
