Norfolk Dredging Wins Poplar Island Contract

Norfolk Dredging Co. of Chesapeake, Virginia, has been awarded a $7.1 million Poplar Island Sand Stockpile contract.

The contract is for hydraulic dredging of up to 1,350,000 cubic yards of sandy material from borrow areas approximately one mile away from Poplar Island (northern and southwest borrow areas).

The dredged material will be placed on the island’s Cells 1D and 4C.

According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Baltimore District, the deadline for completion of the project is July 23, 2017.

Poplar Island is a 1,140-acre environmental restoration project located in Chesapeake Bay approximately 35 miles southeast of Baltimore in Talbot County, MD.

The concept to reconstruct Poplar Island using clean dredged material was developed through the cooperative efforts of several state and federal agencies and private organizations.

Detailed planning and design of the project began in mid-1994 by a joint venture between Gahagan & Bryant Associates, Inc., and Moffatt & Nichol Engineers (GBA-M&N JV).
