The USACE, Savannah District, recently posted a photo of the trailing suction hopper dredger Padre Island working in the Savannah outer harbor.

The photo, taken on March 30th 2016, shows the Padre Island of Great Lakes Doc & Dredge Company (GLDD) deepening the outer channel as part of the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project (SHEP).

Deepening of the Savannah harbor from 42 feet to 47 feet will allow larger, post-Panamax ships greater access to the nation’s fourth busiest container port.

Hopper dredging to deepen the Savannah harbor ended March 31, but deepening will continue with a cutterhead dredge, according to the USACE.
