Luedtke Gets Burns Harbor Dredging Contract from Corps (USA)

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Chicago District awarded a $1.69 million contract June 30, 2014, to Luedtke Engineering Company for maintenance dredging of Burns Harbor in Portage, Ind.

Luedtke Engineering Company of Frankfort, Mich., is certified as a small business concern.

The firm-fixed-price construction contract is for mechanical dredging and disposal of 165,000 cubic yards at Burns waterway. The dredged material from the Outer Harbor and Approach Channel will be placed in Ogden Dunes. The material from the East and West arms will be placed in deep water.

Work is expected to begin summer 2014.

Burns Harbor handles more ocean-going cargo than any other U.S. Great Lakes port and 15 percent of U.S. steel trade with Europe. Dredging ensures all vessels have safe access through the harbor.

Dredging is funded by Corps’ Operation & Maintenance money.
