MOBILE HARBOR TURNING BASIN
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Part of a five-year expansion initiative for the Port of Mobile to accommodate larger cargo vessel, this new work project consisted of dredging 2.7 million cubic yards from the Mobile Harbor Turning Basin and widening a portion of the Mobile Harbor Bay Channel. Dredging operations concluded with the new basin measuring 1,175 feet by 715 feet. This contract extended the capability of the 45-foot Mobile Ship Channel to provide easier navigability for ships traveling in and out of the three major terminals at the Port.
