    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and non-Federal Sponsor, Miami-Dade County, invite the public to attend an informational public meeting on the Miami-Dade County Back-Bay Coastal Storm Risk Management Feasibility Study. The Corps and county will host the. committed to widening and deepening the Norfolk Harbor and channels to make way for safe and efficient two-way passage of these big ships.

    Norfolk Harbor and Channels Widening and Deepening—A provision that authorizes the deepening and widening of federal navigation channels in and around Norfolk Harbor—including the deepening of the main Norfolk Harbor Channel to 55 feet, the deepest draft currently authorized of any international port on the East Coast. When dredging is complete in , the port will be the deepest on the U.S. East Coast, and the commercial channels serving Norfolk Harbor will be able to accommodate two ULCVs at the same time.

Abstract: This report presents the findings of physical model tests of deepening the approach channels to Norfolk and Newport News, Virginia. The tests included a steady-state portion for the determination of the tide and current velocity effects of channel deepening as well as a dynamic portion where variable tide and freshwater inputs were used to study salinity : David R Richards, Michael R Morton.

Previously the VIMS modeling group has studied the impact of channel deepening on the water quality in lower James River, including Norfolk Harbor and Elizabeth River.

A study of the response of the water quality to future Sea Level Change (SLC) is required by present USACE guidance (ER and ETL ). NORFOLK HARBOR & CHANNELS PROJECT The Norfolk Harbor and Channels project was authorized in WRDA to 55' and has been constructed in stages to its current 50'.

The investments the port is making in its terminals, combined with the deepening and widening of Norfolk Harbor and its commercial channels, will drive business to.

To investigate the feasibility for Norfolk Harbor channel deepening in the lower James and Elizabeth Rivers, one of the key services of the project is to evaluate the impacts of deepening the Atlantic Ocean Channel to 55 feet (from 50 feet), Thimble Shoal Channel to 55 feet (from 50 feet), Elizabeth River (north of Lambert Point) to 50 feet (from 45 feet) and the Southern Branch (north of the I64 Bridge).

The Norfolk Harbor and Channels Deepening Project consists of a network of federally-improved channels extending from the Atlantic Ocean, through the Chesapeake Bay, and into the Port of Hampton Roads.

The study is anticipated to include an evaluation of a range of Norfolk Harbor Channels' dimensions. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is in the final stages of its three-year study of the project, which would widen and deepen Norfolk Harbor and channels.

The largest container vessels calling at West Coast ports today have roughly twice the capacity of those that served our ports just five years ago.

Dredging works have begun at the Port of Virginia to turn it into the deepest port on the US East Coast. The US$ million project will deepen the western side of Thimble Shoal Channel, which leads into Norfolk Harbor, to 17 metres, hence enabling the commercial channels serving the harbour to simultaneously accommodate two ultra-large container vessels.
