Bertucci Wins Houston Channel Deal

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, has awarded a contract in the amount of $6.2 million to Bertucci Contracting Company LLC, for shoreline stabilization along the Houston Ship Channel’s Mid Bay Placement Area and Placement Area 15 in Chambers County, Texas.

Work will consist of replacement of damaged riprap along the shoreline in order to protect the placement area from wave erosion.

Dredged material placement areas are necessary for the Corps to maintain navigation along federal channels,” said Tricia Campbell, an operations manager in the USACE Galveston District’s Navigation Branch.These placement areas provide capacity for maintenance material dredged from the Houston Ship Channel and Bayport Ship Channel projects.”

According to Campbell, each year, the USACE Galveston District dredges approximately 30 to 40 million cubic yards of material from Texas channels to fulfill its mission of keeping waterways open for navigation and commerce (benefiting ports handling 500 million tons of commerce annually).

Work is scheduled to begin August 2015 with an estimated completion date of March 2016.
