Dredging Program in Chesapeake Bay Moves Forward (USA)

The Chesapeake Bay $20 million dredging scheme is currently underway.

Dutra Dredging is performing maintenance dredging in portions of the Thimble Shoal Federal Navigation Channel and the Cape Henry Federal Navigation Channel, Chesapeake Bay, Virginia.

The work is being undertaken by Dutra’s hopper dredge Stuyvesant, with all dredged material transported and placed at the designated Government-furnished placement area at Dam Neck Ocean Disposal Site.

Work in Thimble Shoal includes dredging of approximately 1.25 million cubic yards of material to a required depth of 51 feet MLLW, and work in Cape Henry Channel involves dredging of about 1.6 million cubic yards of material to a required depth of 51 feet MLLW.
