Callan wins Gulf Intracoastal Waterway dredging gig

Callan Marine has won a contract for maintenance dredging of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway – Rollover Pass to the Galveston Causeway.

This project will include the removal of 1,500,000 cubic yards of sediment from the area.

Also, the material will be placed at a designated Dredge Material Placement Area (DMPA) along the channel.

Dredging will begin in early November 2020, utilizing Callan Marine’s dredger General Pershing.

Further, dredging is anticipated to be completed early to mid-2021.

“Callan Marine is proud to provide this dredging service for the US Army Corps of Engineers right in our own back yard,” remarked Maxie McGuire, President of Callan Marine.

“Ensuring efficient transport on our nation’s waterways is part of Callan’s mission and we are honored to maintain this significant piece of the Gulf’s navigation.”

Callan Marine, LTD. is a Texas-based, family-owned dredging business founded in 2009.
