The Port Mansfield dredging operations are progressing according to schedule.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, last month awarded a contract modification in the amount of $808,139 to Orion Marine Inc., to undertake 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 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.”
