USA: Goodloe Marine to Dredge Gulf Intracoastal Waterway

Goodloe Marine to Dredge Gulf Intracoastal Waterway

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, awarded a contract in the amount of $6,318,000 to Goodloe Marine Inc. to perform maintenance dredging within the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, between Turnstake Island and Live Oak Point, in Calhoun, Aransas and San Patricio counties, Texas.

The contractor is required to remove approximately 1.6 million cubic yards of shoaled material from the channel reaches to provide sufficient channel depth for the transit of shallow-draft vessels. The dredge material will be placed in open water and upland placement areas directly adjacent to the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.

Execution of this maintenance dredging contract is critical to providing unrestricted navigation along this portion of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway,” said Chris Frabotta, chief of Navigation Branch, USACE Galveston District. “The movement of commerce, through barge traffic, is an essential link between the Texas ports, Gulf regional ports and various facilities throughout the nation.”

Work is scheduled to begin in late April 2014 with an estimated completion in September 2014.
