Dredging continues in Berwick Bay

Manson Construction Co. began dredging Berwick Bay Sept. 19 and will finish the project in about a month. The contract dredged about a 3-mile stretch from 20 Grand Point and Tidewater Point to Stouts Pass. Dredging should start in the Atchafalaya River Bar Channel Oct. 29 and could last up to 100 days.

Dredging work is ongoing in Berwick Bay and set to begin in the Atchafalaya River Bar Channel by the end of October in an effort to keep the area’s waterways deep enough for vessels to navigate.
