Public Notice: Valdez Harbor Dredging Project

Valdez Small Boat Harbor Dredging Project

The entrance to the small boat harbor will be dredged between November 6th and December 30th, 2017. Harris Sand & Gravel will conduct dredging work from 7:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., Monday thru Saturday, excluding holidays.

Mariners can expect to see two barges, a tug, and several small boats working on the project. The dump barge carrying dredged material will leave the harbor two to three times per day to release sediment at a pre-designated location in Port Valdez.

Minor impacts to vessel traffic are anticipated when the barges are working near the east end of the south fuel dock. Vessels working on the project will be monitoring and communicating real time traffic impacts on VHF Channels 13 and 16. Mariners are requested to transit the area with caution.

For additional information about the harbor dredging project, please contact the City Capital Facilities Department @ 835-5478 or
