Petersburg Navigation Improvements Project
A clamshell dredge hoists shoal from the bottom of Petersburg Borough’s harbor system in southeast Alaska. Recently, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Alaska District completed the Petersburg Navigation Improvements project funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The project restored the South Harbor to original design depths ranging from minus 9 to 19 feet and improved general navigation features to allow for safe passage of vessels. The first ever dredging operation within the basin since it was built in 1982 removed about 57,000 cubic yards of material. (Photo Courtesy of USACE – Alaska District)
