The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District, last Friday (Dec. 14) unveiled a photo from the Port of Baltimore dredging project.

The Baltimore District is managing this $17.5 million contract that was awarded to Norfolk Dredging for the removal of approximately 2 million cubic yards of material from shipping channels leading to the Port of Baltimore.

The project will involve dredging material from six federal channels in Maryland waters that are associated with the Port of Baltimore including the Curtis Bay, Craighill Entrance, Craighill Channel, Craighill Angle, Craighill Upper Range, and Cutoff Angle segments.

The channels will be dredged to a depth of 51 feet plus one to two feet of allowable overdepth. Work is expected to be completed by early spring 2019.

Pictured above are the crews currently working in the Craighill Entrance.
