Picture of the Day: Newark Bay Dredging

The Clamshell head on this dredge boat is removing sediment from the bottom of Newark Bay, in effort to deepen the harbor to 50 feet.

This is part of the New York and New Jersey Harbor Deepening Project, that when complete, will allow bigger container vessels to enter the harbor.

The project area is the main navigation channels in the Port of New York and New Jersey that support the container terminals. The non-federal partner is The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The authorized project provides 50 ft water access to the four container terminals by deepening Ambrose Channel from deep water in the Atlantic Ocean to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the Anchorage Channel (from the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to its confluence with the Port Jersey Channel), the Kill Van Kull Channel, the main Newark Bay Channel to Pt. Elizabeth and the Port Elizabeth and South Elizabeth tributary channels, the Arthur Kill Channel adjacent to the New York Container Terminal), and the Port Jersey.
