Harbor Dredging Pauses Temporarily

Share this post

The dredging project at the Indiana Harbor and Ship Canal has been put on hold temporarily for maintenance work at the Dickey Road Bridge in East Chicago. The US Army Corps of Engineers is removing millions of cubic yards of polluted sediment from the waterway over a thirty-year period. The harbor was last dredged in 1972. Work got underway last fall, before pausing due to winter weather. The corps says the sediments pollute Lake Michigan and affect the efficiency of commercial navigation.
