Kingston Marina Project Completed on Time

American Construction Company Inc., a general marine contractor that has been in business since 1903, has completed the Port of Kingston marina dredging project.

The project that was originally estimated at $463.000 was finished on December 18th under the budget and on time at a cost of $320,000, according to Port Manager David Malone.

During the project, which lasted approximately one month, around 17,000-cubic yards of sediment was removed from the marina and transported to waters north of Mukilteo and Everett.

With the dredging being completed, the port will now continue to monitor the dredged area, and eelgrass that was relocated just outside of the breakwater, for five years. If sediment continues to flow into the marina another dredge may be necessary.
