Weeks Marine, a marine construction and dredging contractor headquartered in Cranford, NJ, has won an $11.5 million contract for Mississippi River maintenance dredging project.

Bids were solicited via the internet with one received, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) said in its latest announcement.

According to DoD, the dredging operations will be performed in Plaquemines, Louisiana, with an estimated completion date of December 31, 2019.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District, is the contracting activity and one of their primary missions is supporting navigation across its area of responsibility.

Without the vital work performed by the district and its partners to keep these navigational channels open, goods and materials would cost more to ship and would vastly increase the number of semi trucks on the road that would also lead to increase in wear and tear on transportation routes.
