NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a $12 million contract for the dredging of 90 miles of the James River.
The Norfolk office of the corps said the three-year contract calls for the removal of shoals from the so-called federal navigation channel, which is used by large vessels making port calls to Richmond and Hopewell. The dredging will occur from the mouth of the James in Hampton Roads to the capital city.
The channel is maintained to a depth of 25 feet and a width of 300 feet in Hopewell and a depth of 25 feet and a width of 200 feet in Richmond.
The contract is with Cottrell Contracting Corp. of Chesapeake.
