Houma Navigation Canal Dredging to Continue in 2019

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers delivered to Congress its Fiscal Year 2019 Work Plan for the Army Civil Works program Nov. 20, 2018, which included $4 million for dredging the Houma Navigation Canal in the New Orleans District.

According to the Corps, the $4 million will fund dredging of inland reaches on the canal, which have not been dredged since 2006, to the authorized depth of 15 feet. Approximately 500,000 cubic yards of material will be dredged with upland disposal.

The contract is expected to be advertised and awarded in late summer 2019 with work starting shortly thereafter. The work will take approximately two to three months to complete depending on the dredge size.

USACE also added that any remaining funds from the $4 million Work Plan allocation will be used for spot dredging in the Houma Navigation Canal Bay.

The Houma Navigation Canal Bay and Bar reaches are currently being dredged with funding from the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018. That work is scheduled to be complete in January 2019.
