Construction works have officially started on the long-awaited Valdez New Harbor Development Project.
Representatives of the City of Valdez, ARCADIS U.S. Inc. and the public, gathered last Friday, April 24th to begin works on the Expansion Project.
The New Harbor Project is a multi-year, phased project to build a new harbor basin and upland facilities on the south side of Hotel Hill.
The new harbor will include docks/moorage capacity, vehicle parking lot, additional vessel launch ramps, and support services. New access roads and pedestrian walkways will be included to provide increased waterfront accessibility.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is providing the dredging and breakwaters with work anticipated to begin Spring 2016.
