CH­E­SA­PEAKE CITY — The U. S. Army Corps of En­gi­neers has awarded a con­tract for the dredg­ing of the Ch­e­sa­peake City Basin, with the project ex­pected to get un­der­way this fall.

The Corps an­nounced ear­lier this month that the con­tract to dredge the basin and parts of the C& D Canal has been awarded to Jade Creek Construction LLC, of Manas­sas, Va., in the amount of $ 2,199,856.09.

The work will in­volve dredg­ing the area owned by the Corps, roughly half of the basin, to a depth of 10 feet, as well as dredg­ing an ad­di­tional 10,000- lin­ear­foot stretch in the C& D Canal east of the basin to a depth of 35 feet.

“I guess the word that would best de­scribe ev­ery­thing would be ‘ fi­nally,’” said Ch­e­sa­peake City Mayor Dean Geraci­mos.
