Manson Construction Secures $5.2M Dredging Contract

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, recently awarded a contract to Manson Construction in the amount of approximately $5.2 million for maintenance dredging within the Entrance Channel of the Sabine-Neches Waterway, Texas.

A hopper dredge will remove around 3.15 million cubic yards of sediment from the Sabine-Neches Waterway Entrance Channel beginning in September 2016 and is scheduled to be completed in December 2016.

The Sabine Neches Waterway serves as an irreplaceable link in our nation’s energy and military transportation network,” said Deputy Chief Christopher Frabotta, USACE Galveston’s Operations Division. “The waterway not only links to an extensive pipeline system that supplies fuel to communities and businesses across the country, it supports more than 100,000 permanent jobs and pumps billions of dollars into the economy each year to stimulate economic development in Texas.”

According to Frabotta, the Corps Galveston District partnered with the Sabine Neches Navigation District to maintain the waterways and facilitate and sustain commerce in the ship channel for Southeast Texas and the nation.

The Sabine Neches Waterway provides deep water navigation from the Gulf of Mexico to various port facilities including the Port Beaumont (ranked 4th in domestic and foreign tonnage), the Port Arthur (ranked 20th in domestic and foreign tonnage), and the Port Orange.
