The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a Single Award Task Order Contract to Brice Civil Constructors, Inc. to dredge the Atchafalaya River Bar Channel, the Morgan City Harbor and Terminal District – Port of Morgan City, LA – said in its latest release. 

The contractor will be working with specially-built equipment to reduce the density of the fluid mud, referred to as fluff, in the last 12 miles of the channel in the Gulf of Mexico.

“Brice plans to start immediately purchasing the components needed to assemble the plant at Halimar Shipyard, LLC in Morgan City, Louisiana. Brice anticipates roughly 150 days to procure, assemble, and test the plant with operations to immediately follow,” said Port of Morgan City.

Commenting the latest news, Jon McVay, President of Brice Civil Constructors, said: “We look forward to joining your community and working with the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Port of Morgan City to successfully complete this project.”

According to the official city’s statement, USACE will continue to issue contracts for sand removal works on the rest of the channel.
