A maintenance dredging project on a 4.5-mile section from the Port of Palm Beach to the Town of Palm Beach Docks, sponsored by the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND), is currently underway. 

This portion of the Intracoastal Waterway (IWW) channel has not received maintenance dredging since its original construction in the 1960’s, said the Town of Palm Beach in its release.

Material from the IWW channel is being mechanically dredged by Orion Marine Construction, Inc., placed into a self-contained hopper barge, and transferred to the Palm Beach County Tarpon Cove Restoration Area.

Under the contract, the project will restore shoaled areas (presently impeding navigation) to their federally authorized depths.

Dredging work started mid-February 2019 and is expected to continue for about 90 days.
