Lakeshore firm wins $657K dredging contract
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Detroit district has awarded a contract to a lakeshore company to dredge shoal material from two Lake Michigan harbors.
Holland-based The King Company will use $657,500 to complete maintenance dredging at Grand Haven and Holland harbors.
District engineer Lt. Col. Robert Ellis said both are essential to marine commerce.
The work is expected to begin in early April and be completed by late May.
The company will dredge mostly sandy material from the harbors and place it along the shoreline in Holland and near the shore in Grand Haven.
The Corps' Detroit district maintains a navigation system that includes 94 harbors and channels that link Lake Superior, Michigan, Huron and Erie.
