The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah District has awarded a $133.1 million contract to Norfolk Dredging Co. of Chesapeake, Virginia, to perform the Savannah inner harbor dredging project.
Work will be performed in Savannah, Georgia, with an estimated completion date of Sept. 6, 2021.
According to the FedBizOpps, the project includes removal of all material, including any material within the existing maintenance prism, to required project depths and overdepths.
The maintenance dredging project will take place between Stations 70+000 to 103+000 and Kings Island Turning Basin.
All dredged material will be disposed of in existing confined upland disposal areas.
Work will not be allowed above Station 63+360 in the harbor from approximately April 1 to May 15 to avoid impacts to striped bass fishery resources.
Last year, the Army Corps oversaw the dredging of approx. six million cubic yards of maintenance material from the Savannah inner harbor.
