The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, last week hosted a tour of the dredger Texas, a cutter suction dredging vessel currently working in the Charleston Harbor Entrance Channel on the Post 45 Deepening Project.

The Charleston Harbor Post 45 Deepening Project looks to address transportation inefficiencies by deepening and widening Charleston Harbor to allow for growth in the shipping industry with the influx of Post-Panamax ships calling on port in the Lowcountry.

The $213 million construction contract for the Charleston Harbor Entrance Channel – part of the Charleston Harbor Post 45 Deepening Project – was awarded to Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company (GLDD) back in October 2017.

During the works, GLDD will remove approximately 7.95 million cubic yards of material from the Entrance Channel.
