The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Philadelphia District and its contractor Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company (GLDD) are continuing to remove rock material as part of the project to deepen the Delaware River from 40 to 45 feet.

USACE has just released the latest photos of the GLDD’s mechanical dredger New York – taken during the rock removal operations that are currently taking place just north of the Delaware Memorial Bridge.

The deeper channel will provide for more efficient transportation of cargo to and from Delaware River ports, said USACE.

The project is a joint effort between USACE and the Port of Philadelphia.
