USA: Port of Gulfport Dredging About to Begin

The Port of Gulfport dredging program will start next week, according to Port Director Jonathan Daniels.

The channel leading to and from the Port of Gulfport is 33 feet deep, 3 feet less than its authorized depth of 36 feet, but that is about to change.

Next Tuesday, the Army Corps of Engineers and their contractor will be mobilizing to commence the dredging work,” Daniels told the port authority board.

The federal government is providing $4 million for the dredging, and the port will pay $8 million.

Daniels said the work should be completed by mid-January. The channel has not had a complete maintenance dredging since 2009.
