Norfolk Dredging Secures Prime Hook Gig
Norfolk Dredging Co. of Chesapeake, Virginia, has just won a $13.4 million firm-fixed-price contract for the Prime Hook Beach Restoration.
The work includes dredging beachfill from a near shore borrow area and placing it along approximately 6,375 linear feet of shoreline to create a dune with a 40 foot wide crest and beach berm approximately 220 feet wide on the seaward side and 70 feet wide on the landward side.
It will take around 1.1 million cubic yards of sand along the shoreline to fill the deep cuts formed during Hurricane Sandy and other storms.
Work will be performed in Prime Hook, Delaware, with an estimated completion date of May 8, 2016.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is the contracting activity.
