Callan Marine is currently serving as the prime contractor to the Texas Department of Transportation for a maintenance dredging project located at the Bolivar Ferry Terminal.
The project consists of the removal of 369,000 cubic yards of material and returning the landings to the required depth of 22’.
The dredged material was hydraulically transported via 4,000’ of pipeline to placement area BU-1, located northeast of the dredging location.
The project is anticipated to be complete in mid-July by Callan’s fleet dredge the General Patton.
The General Patton is an 18” cutter suction dredge, 140’ in length with 3,000 total installed horsepower.
“Maintaining transportation routes is a priority for the Texas Department of Transportation,” said Micah Morris, Callan Marine’s Brown Water Divison Manager. “Callan Marine is proud to facilitate these projects with safety and integrity, completing projects quickly during peak summer travel months.”
