Located in Southeast Alaska between Juneau and Ketchikan, the Petersburg Navigation Improvements project restored the South Harbor to original design depths ranging from minus 9 to 19 feet and improved general navigation features to allow for safe passage of vessels.

The first ever dredging operation within the basin since it was built in 1982 removed about 57,000 cubic yards of material.
