Port of Caddo-Bossier Dredging Not Yet Scheduled (USA)
A new dock at the Port of Caddo-Bossier will not be operational until the waterway is dredged, reports seattlepi.com.
Eric England, the port director, stated that the dredging program at the mentioned area hasn’t yet been scheduled because the contractor is working elsewhere on the Red River.
According to England, the $11 million dock is part of the port’s master plan to grow as a multimodal transportation hub.
