South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) Board has approved construction and quality assurance contracts for its Columbus Street Terminal.
At its recent meeting, the Board also approved two additional contracts for projects at SCPA’s container terminals in South Carolina.
The first contract is for annual maintenance dredging at the North Charleston Terminal and the second one is for a terminal planning study for the Wando Welch Terminal.
The main channel beyond the Navy base to the North Charleston Terminal will be dredged to 48 feet.
The Board also authorized improvements to SCPA’s existing dredged material containment area on Daniel Island in preparation for dredging during the construction of the Hugh Leatherman Terminal, as well as maintenance work at the Clouter Creek dredged material containment area.
