Everett Dredging Schedule

By Karen Robes Meeks

Maintenance dredging of the upper and lower channel of the Everett Harbor and Snohomish River’s upper and lower channel is expected to be done by the end of January.

The $1.5 million project, which began November 18, is being done by the US Army Corps of Engineers in partnership with the Port of Everett.

The work involves dredging some 100,000 cubic yards of material from the upper channel and 40,000 cubic yards from the lower one.

Area boaters are advised to be cautious, pass on the marina side of the dredge, mind the rig markings and avoid traveling over the pipeline.
