Only one contractor bid on a large Port of Kalama dredging project, but the port seems to have found a decent price for the work anyway.

Port commissioners Wednesday approved an $894,000 contract with Vancouver-based HME Construction Inc. to dredge 50,000 yards of sand out of the ship mooring area at the TEMCO Grain Terminal along the Columbia River.
