PHOTO: TSHD Padre Island Working in Savannah

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah District, has just released this beautiful photo of the trailing suction hopper dredge Padre Island, during its work for the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project (SHEP).

The dredger, owned by Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company, is currently conducting the cleanup work on the Savannah River entrance channel – part of the SHEP.

This capital dredging program will deepen the Savannah harbor and the associated shipping channel from an authorized depth of 42 feet to 47 feet.

The deepening work will allow larger, more efficient container vessels to use the East Coast’s second busiest container harbor with fewer weight and tidal restrictions.

Inner harbor work will also include constructing three bend wideners and two meeting areas, and enlarging the Kings Island Turning Basin at the Garden City Terminal.
