Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker Tours Boston Harbor Deepening Project with Corps of Engineers, Massport, and GLDD

Posted on September 8, 2021

Phase III of the project is currently underway and scheduled to be complete well ahead of the November 2022 deadline. This is the final phase of the project and includes rock removal through blasting and hydraulic backhoe dredging which will provide navigational improvements to the Boston Harbor Navigation Project. “The Harbor Deepening Project is integral to the continued development and success of the Commonwealth’s maritime economy and will provide expanded access and connectivity to the global marketplace,” said Governor Baker. Boston is New England’s largest port for import and export of commerce.
