Corps of Engineers highlights importance of work at New York/New Jersey – Dredging News Online

The US Army Corps of Engineers, in partnership with The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, is continuing work to improve the main shipping channels in the port by deepening them to a depth of 50ft, allowing more efficient access to the worldfs largest oceangoing ships.

Deepening the Arthur Kill Channel approaching the New York Container Terminal is now underway in the waters off of Elizabeth, NJ and Staten Island to allow large ships to safely transit the shipping channel and a critical component in providing safe navigation access to the port.

The Arthur Kill Channel deepening effort is one of the last construction elements as part of a more extensive harbor-dredging project to create safe and efficient channels for a larger class of vessels that will be calling at the Port of New York and New Jersey.
