CJW Construction Inc., from Santa Ana, California, has won an $8.3 million firm-fixed-price contract for maintenance dredging of the Houston ship channel.
Work will be performed in Houston, Texas, with an estimated completion date of September 30, 2015. Bids were solicited via the Internet with four received. The Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, is the contracting activity.
The Houston ship channel is the conduit for ocean-going vessels between Houston-area terminals and the Gulf of Mexico, and serves an increasing volume of inland barge traffic.
The channel has numerous terminals and berthing locations along Buffalo Bayou and Galveston Bay. The major public terminals include Turning Basin, Barbours Cut, and Bayport.
