Sandy Hook dredging project coming soon
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District has proposed to perform maintenance dredging of New York Harbor, Sandy Hook Federal Channel.
The project calls for the removal of approximately 200,000 cubic yards of dredged material from the Sandy Hook Channel.
Based on past dredging cycles, the proposed work will be most likely performed by utilizing a mechanical dredge with a clamshell bucket.
According to USACE, the entire channel will not be dredged; only areas where shoaling has reduced the depth of the channel will require dredging.
Plans and specifications for the project were released in June 2023. The Government’s intention is to award the contract in August 2023 and issue the NTP in September 2023.
