The Norfolk Dredging Company yesterday received a $9.3 million contract from the Army Corps for maintenance dredging works in Norfolk Harbor, Virginia.
According to the Corps, the project includes maintenance dredging of the internal channels of Norfolk Harbour, by mechanical dredging.
Overall, the Norfolk project will involve the deepening of the southern portion of the Norfolk Harbor Entrance Reach between HRBT and Sewells Point, Sewells Point to Lamberts Bend, Cranie Island Reach and Norfolk Harbor Reach.
These sections will be dredged to the required depth of -52 ft Mean Lower Water (MLLW).
USACE estimates that this maintenance dredging project will remove 500,000 cubic yards of material from these areas.
The last date for completion of work is 15 March 2023.
