October 31, 2018 – PORT OF MORGAN CITY, LA, The Morgan City Harbor and Terminal District (Port of Morgan City) was notified that on October 30, 2018 the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded a Single Award Task Order Contract to Brice Civil Constructors, Inc. (Brice) to dredge the Atchafalaya River Bar Channel. Brice will be working with specialty-built equipment to reduce the density of the fluid mud, referred to as fluff, in the last 12 miles of the channel in the Gulf of Mexico.  Brice plans to start immediately purchasing the components needed to assemble the plant at Halimar Shipyard, LLC in Morgan City, Louisiana.  Brice anticipates roughly 150 days to procure, assemble, and test the plant with operations to immediately follow.

Jon McVay, President of Brice Civil Constructors, Inc. stated, “We look forward to joining your community and working with the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Port of Morgan City to successfully complete this project.”

The Corps of Engineers will continue to issue contracts for sand removal by cutterhead dredge from the remainder of the channel.

Raymond “Mac” Wade, Executive Director of the Port of Morgan City said, “The combination of these two operations will provide a reliable, consistent, 20’ deep by 400’ wide channel.”
