Intracoastal Waterway Dredging Plan Unveiled
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, has announced a plan for the New Jersey Intracoastal Waterway dredging program.
The solicitation for this contract will be issued on or about 15 May 2015 with a bid opening date of 16 June 2015. The total value is estimated to be between $1 million and $5 million.
This development scheme will consist of maintenance dredging of the New Jersey Intracoastal Waterway and adjacent New Jersey waterways:
– Dredging will be required to clear shoals and to maintain safe navigable depths;
– Dike building/containment is required to safely contain the quantity of dredged material;
– Additionally, placement involving beneficial use and marsh restoration alternatives will be utilized where permitted and appropriate.
Due to environmental restrictions, dredging must occur within a window from 1 June through 31 December 2015. Disposal facilities, a combination of upland disposal facilities and thin layer placement on marshland, will be provided by the Government.
