According to the company, the crews working on the Boston dredging project sent the 4,000th barge-load of material for disposal this weekend.

With the 4,000th barge sent for disposal, this project is almost done and the finish line is in sight.

The $122.2 million Boston Harbor Navigation Project (Phase 2) was awarded to the Joint Venture of Cashman Dredging, Inc. and Dutra Group in February 2018.

In total, the contractor will remove around 11.7 million cubic yards of silt, blue clay, till and weathered rock as part of Phase II of the three-phased Boston project.

Phase III of the project, which includes drilling and blasting of the remaining rock, is scheduled to start in 2021. This involves removing approximately 200,000 to 500,000 cubic yards of hard rock.

Phase I – the maintenance dredging of the inner harbor was completed in December 2017. The $12.8 million contract was awarded to Great Lakes Dredge and Dock of Oak Brook, Illinois, in September 2016.
