first_imgThe Army Corps’ Norfolk District has awarded a 120-day period of performance contract to Cottrell Contracting Corp. for the Lynnhaven Inlet Federal Navigation Project.The new contract takes effect in May with completion projected for September.“The ultimate goal of the project is to restore the authorized dimensions to support safe, reliable, efficient, effective and environmentally sustainable waterborne transportation,” said Chris Tolson, district project manager and technical lead.Approximately 170,000 cubic yards of dredged material will be placed on Cape Henry and nearby beaches for secondary storm-risk reduction and recreational benefit.More than 2 miles of beach are expected to be beneficially impacted.Dredging and placement operations will be 24/7 during the period of performance.Tolson added that the dredge pipeline may run along the length of the beach and will be marked. Sand ramps will be constructed over the pipeline for beachgoers to access the swash zone.“Boaters can expect a working dredge, barge and tender equipment in the water that may temporarily restrict channel navigation. The dredge pipeline may be floated or submerged in vicinity of the project, and boaters should use caution and stay aware of the local notice to mariners,” the Corps said in its release.last_img read more
