Orion to Dredge Port Mansfield

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District awarded a contract modification in the amount of $808,139 to Orion Marine Inc., to conduct maintenance dredging at the channel to Port Mansfield between the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and the entrance to the port, a distance of approximately one mile.

The contractor will be required to dredge the channel to -8 feet mean low tide and remove approximately 200,000 cubic yards of material, with work expected to begin on February 13, 2015.

The channel has shoaled to the extent there is only two feet of water for vessels to utilize,”said Seth Jones, USACE Galveston District operations manager. “This maintenance dredging will allow the port to continue operations and to further their economic development plan to revitalize the port.”

According to Jones, the dredged material will be beneficially used to reduce erosion and help stabilize a nearby bird island. The project is expected to be completed approximately two weeks after commencement.
