McNally Construction Bags Digby Dredging Deal

The Digby Port Harbour Association accepted the McNally Construction’s bid for the Digby wharf development project.

This project includes:

– dredging the area where the middle ell was;

– installation of the gangway and floating dock system.

The work should commence within a few weeks, stated Jeff Sunderland, Port Manager.

According to, the contractor plans to use a large crane and barge and a small harbour tug to remove approximately 4,000 cubic metres of the material from the site.

“McNally installed the float system for us last time, so they’re familiar with the port and how busy it is. They were good to work with last time and I don’t expect that to be any different this time,” added Sunderland.

The completion deadline for this development program is March 31.
