Escanaba harbor dredging set

ESCANABA – Dredging of the Escanaba harbor is expected to begin this week with the cost of the project being fully funded by the Department of Natural Resources. The Escanaba City Council awarded the bid for the work at Thursday’s regular meeting.

The council unanimously awarded the dredging bid to MCM Marine of Sault Ste. Marie in the approximate amount of $142,620. MCM was among nine contractors which submitted bids to remove about 14,000 cubic yards of sand from the harbor, said O’Toole.
