The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, reported today that the Channel Islands Harbor dredging project is progressing well and is expected to be completed before the end of February.

Channel Islands Harbor Director Lyn Krieger and Los Angeles District Commander Col. Kirk Gibbs recently visited the area, where they were briefed on the progress of the construction works.

At the moment, the hydraulic cutter-head suction dredge H.R. Morris is digging up sediment from the Channel Islands Harbor that will be used to replenish the Hueneme Beach.

Seattle-based Manson Construction, the contractor responsible for dredging of the sand trap at Channel Islands Harbor and replenishment of the sand at Hueneme Beach, started the works in late December 2016.

According to the Corps, the anticipated amount of sand to be placed on Hueneme Beach will exceed 2 million cubic yards.
