Congresswoman Louise Slaughter will tomorrow help mark the completion of the Rochester Harbor navigational dredging for this year.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, began dredging at Rochester Harbor on May 17.
As part of the $1,722,500 contract, awarded to Luedtke Engineering Company of Frankfort, MI, a total of 210,000 cubic yards of sediment was dredged from the federal navigation channel this year.
“The Rochester Harbor helps drive job creation and construction projects across Monroe County, importing $10 million worth of goods every single year,” said Congresswoman Louise Slaughter.
“Performing proper maintenance will help ensure this harbor can continue its operations and support economic growth across Western New York. I thank the Army Corps for its partnership in keeping this port open for business and safe for navigation.”
Congresswoman Slaughter added that the representatives of the Army Corps of Engineers, the Coast Guard and EssRoc Ready Mix will be on hand to mark the end of dredging.
