The Kings Bay Entrance Channel Dredging Project wrapped up last week, placing 123.400 cubic yards of sand at Fort Clinch beach and 165.000 cubic yards of sand on Fernandina Beach, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers just announced. 

USACE awarded the dredging contract in December to Manson Construction Co. of Seattle, Washington, for approximately $23.6 million.

The project, sponsored by the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, is critical to commercial cargo transiting the port and also to the Navy base, which shares the entrance channel, USACE said.

This scheme included maintenance dredging of the entrance channel and parts of inner channel, returning the project to its authorized dimensions.

It also involved beneficial placement of beach compatible sand at Fort Clinch State Park and the northern portion of Fernandina Beach.
