USACE Preparing Tender for West Coast Hopper Dredging

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District, is planning to release an Invitation for Bids (IFB) for the West Coast Hopper Maintenance Dredging 2018.

According to the Corps, the project includes hopper dredging work at four locations: Humboldt Bay Bar and Entrance, California; San Francisco Mainship Channel, California; Columbia River, Oregon/Washington from River Mile 3+00 to 105+00; Mouth of the Columbia River, Oregon/Washington.

Approximately 3,250,000 cubic yards will be dredged as mandatory line items, with additional optional items depending on project needs and funding availability,” USACE reported. “This solicitation is subject to the availability of funds. Placement of dredged material will be located at designated in-water placement sites, including ocean and river disposal. There is additional placement as pump-ashore as an optional item.”

The Corps also added that the contractor could start dredging as early as May 15, 2018, and complete the work around September 30, 2018.

At the moment, the Portland District is awaiting hydrographic survey data related to East Sand Island work that will be released online at FBO.gov as soon as it becomes available.
