Corps Awards Coastal Protection Contract in North Carolina to Great Lakes (USA)

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wilmington District recently awarded a $19.9 million contract to Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation (“Great Lakes”) to provide dredging services to protect Highway 12, the only north-south highway along North Carolina’s Outer Banks.

This coastal protection project involves placing approximately 1.7 million cubic yards of beachfill material immediately north of the Mirlo Beach community in Rodanthe, NC.

This stretch of beach suffered severe beach erosion, dune loss and damage as a result of Super Storm Sandy in 2012.

Great Lakes’ cutter suction dredge Illinois is presently preparing to mobilize to the site to provide this much needed coastal protection.

Mirlo Beach is one of many communities along the East Coast that need to rebuild and restore in the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy.

Great Lakes has already completed four major Sandy coastal protection projects within the past 12 months.
