USA: Extension Project on La Quinta Channel Underway

Construction is currently underway at the La Quinta Channel Extension Project in Nueces County, Texas.

Work includes deepening the channel extension and creating a beneficial use site with a scheduled completion of July 2013.

Extension Project

USACE Galveston awarded a contract September 2011 in the amount of $33,537,027.20 to Texas-based King Fisher Marine Service LP (now known as Orion Marine Group) to complete the project.

Established in 1880 and fondly known as the “Custodians of the Coast,” the USACE Galveston District plays a key role in America’s well-being by keeping waterways open for navigation and commerce and serves the nation as part of the world’s largest public engineering, design and construction management agency.
