New London port to get $3.4M for dredging

Aug 26th, 2011 | By | Category: Water

The port at New London will receive $3.4 million in federal and state money to accommodate larger vessels through dredging of its channels and docks, opening Connecticut to a larger portion of the shipping trade.

On Friday, the Connecticut State Bond Commission is expected to approve $2 million to dredge the floating drydock, turning basin and channel to accommodate deeper vessels. That comes on top of the $1.45 million the New London port received in April from the U.S. Maritime Administration to widen and lengthen the drydock.
