The Kings Bay Entrance Channel dredging project was
successfully completed last week with the removal of 1.2 million cubic yards of
material from the channel.
Material removed from the channel was placed on Nassau
County beaches, the nearshore, and ODMDS . Regional Sand Mangement at Kings
Bay supports the beach project at Nassau County saving millions annually
through the beneficial use of material. The entrance channel supports the safe
passage of the Trident Submarines into Kings Bay.
A new contract award for the Kings Bay Inner Channel
dredging project, which includes an option to support the Marine Corps Support
Facility at Blount Island was announced on April 8. The contract awarded to
Southern Dredging, Co. for $10.4 million, is scheduled for completion in
Congrats to the entire project delivery team on a job
