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.

The Government’s intention is to award the contract this summer and issue the NTP in the fall.
