Posted on April 12, 2024

The First Bucket Ceremony for the San Juan Harbor Dredging and Deepening Project took place this past Wednesday, April 3. This ceremony marked the beginning of the project’s dredging and deepening phase, which is expected to last until October 2024.

Key leaders were in attendance, including:

Puerto Rico Governor Pedro Pierluisi
Puerto Rico Ports Authority Executive Director Joel Pizá
USACE Savannah District Civil Works Chief Jeff Schwindaman
USACE Task Force Virgin Islands Puerto Rico (TF-VIPR) Commander, Col. Charles Decker
USACE TF-VIPR Deputy for Programs & Project Management, Jacqueline Keiser, and many others.

While on-site, Curtin Maritime’s DB Avalon will remove nearly 3 million cubic yards (76 million cubic feet) of new work and maintenance dredging materials. The project is set to allow larger vessels to call the Port, which will also help the Port of San Juan meet the demands of the growing global and local economy.
