Deepening the Shipping Channels
The dredge 'New York' performs dredging for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the Port Jersey Channel, New Jersey. The Corps' New York District has been deepening the shipping channels in the New York /New Jersey Harbor to 50 feet to accommodate larger, deeper-draft ships. This will improve navigational safety and allow the port to accommodate the next generations of larger cargo vessels.
