Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Nets Delaware River Dredging Contract

Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation, a provider of dredging services in the United States and internationally, has been awarded a contract for dredging the main channel of the Delaware River.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded the Company a contract worth $25,376,872 to conduct the project in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

This project involves dredging within the existing 40-foot Delaware River federal navigation channel to deepen it to 45 feet from Philadelphia Harbor, and Beckett Street Terminal, Camden,  along a 102.5-mile distance to deepwater in the Delaware Bay.

The deeper channel will provide for more efficient transportation of containerized, dry bulk (steel and slag) and liquid bulk (crude oil and petroleum products) cargo to and from the Delaware River ports.

The project is expected to be completed until March 31, 2015.
