Galveston, Texas-based Callan Marine has been awarded the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contract for maintenance dredging of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, from Rollover Pass to the Galveston Causeway.
This project will include the removal of 1,500,000 cubic yards of sediment from the area. The material will be placed at a designated Dredge Material Placement Area (DMPA) along the channel as required by the contract. Dredging is anticipated to commence in early November 2020, utilizing Callan Marine’s fleet dredge, the General Pershing. Dredging is anticipated to be completed early to mid-2021.
“Callan Marine is proud to provide this dredging service for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers right in our own back yard,” said Maxie McGuire, president of Callan Marine. “Ensuring efficient transport on our nation’s waterways is part of Callan’s mission and we are honored to maintain this significant piece of the Gulf’s navigation.”
