The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District has awarded a $2.029 million contract to conduct dredging in Buffalo Harbor during summer 2020.

The contract – awarded to Ryba Marine Construction Company, based in Cheboygan, Michigan on July 10, 2019 – will allow federal dredging to occur for the first time since 2018.

We are excited to award this contract to dredge right here in our home city of Buffalo,” said Lt. Col. Jason Toth, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Buffalo District Commander. “The harbor is critical to the Buffalo economy. The Corps of Engineers is proud to help sustain the harbor’s navigation capabilities and contribute to the economy of our city.”

As reported, the current contract will allow for approximately 234,000 cubic yards to be dredged from Buffalo Harbor throughout the Buffalo River and the mouth of the ship canal.

In order to maintain the navigation channel at least 140,000 cubic yards of material needs to be dredged every two years.
