Luedtke Engineering Bags Detroit River Dredging Contract

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District, has awarded a contract for maintenance dredging of the Detroit River.

The contract, worth more than $738.000, was awarded to Luedtke Engineering Company, of Frankfort, Michigan.

“This important dredging project will help maintain a key Great Lakes navigational channel to keep cargo moving – products like iron ore, limestone, coal, and cement that are vital to the regional economy,” said Lt. Col. Dennis Sugrue, district engineer.

“Waterborne transportation of commodities is economical and environmentally friendly, and it plays a vital role in helping the region’s business and industry.”

Luedtke will dredge approximately 80.000 cubic yards of sand, silt, and organic material from the channel.

According to the Corps’ announcement, the material will be deposited at the Pointe Mouillee confined disposal facility in Western Lake Erie in Michigan.

The work is expected to begin in July and wrap up in August.
