REMINDER
The Dismal Swamp Canal will be closed to navigation beginning January 8, tentatively through March 31.
This closure is due to a planned infrastructure refurbishment project at the Deep Creek Locks in Chesapeake.
Vessels transiting the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway must use the Albemarle and Chesapeake Canal as an alternate route during this timeframe.

12/26/2023

Senior leaders from the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), along with representatives from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers North Atlantic Division visited Norfolk District on December 7.

The purpose of this site visit was to collaborate on Norfolk District's advancements in delivering solutions to the unique and complex challenges associated with our Coastal Storm Risk Management (CSRM) projects, and to continue our partnership with ERDC in investigating opportunities where ERDC's team of experts can support the mission of Norfolk District in delivering innovative solutions to these challenges.

Two of the focal points of this visit were the City of Norfolk and the City of Virginia Beach CSRM projects, while also understanding the wholistic impact of innovative approaches to a broader application of solutions to CSRM projects throughout the Enterprise. Connections were made with research and development, while fostering the relationships that are critical to successfully delivering solutions to these challenges.

Norfolk District, in partnership with the Virginia Port Authority (VPA) and the City of Virginia Beach, awarded a $70.6 million contract to Manson Construction Company on December 5. The contract is to deepen phase 2 of the Atlantic Ocean Channel to minimum depth of -59 feet and beneficially use a portion of the material for beach renourishment. Work is expected to start in late Winter 2024 and run through August 2025.

Dredging will take place offshore in the Atlantic Ocean Channel and a portion of the dredged material will be placed at the Virginia Beach Hurricane Protection Project location as well as Croatan Beach. This channel deepening will provide economic benefits to the Port of Virginia, the region, and the Nation by enabling more efficient movement of commodities. The placement of the dredged material will also provide storm risk management benefits to citizens and businesses of Virginia Beach. The arrangements for beneficial use of the dredged material were a regional team effort with cooperation and collaboration among Norfolk District, VPA, the City of Virginia Beach and two different project delivery teams.

This is the third of three USACE channel deepening contracts awarded as part of the Norfolk Harbor and Channels 55-ft. Deepening Project. Earlier contracts include the channel to Newport News and Norfolk Harbor Inner Channel in one combined contract, and the Atlantic Ocean Channel Phase 1. Our cost-sharing partner in the channel-deepening project, VPA, has already issued contracts for deepening and widening Thimble Shoal Channel in the Chesapeake Bay.

With the completion of this contract for the Atlantic Ocean Channel, Phase 2, in 2025, the channels will be available at the minimum 55-ft. depth for use by deeply laden ultra-large container vessel (ULCVs) and large colliers calling on the Port of Virginia.
