Meanwhile, the company’s dredges the Dodge and Padre Island continue working North with the active construction zone moved between Ocean Bay Blvd. and 148 Skimmer Way.

The Padre Island arrived on-site June 1. Upon completion of the pre-dredge checklist, it began work on the northern boundary with the Dodge Island dredge.
