A long-running dredging project is back underway at Menemsha Channel with a new company at the helm. H&L Dredging of Bay Shores, N.Y., aims to complete a project that began two years ago.

An Army Corps of Engineers project to dredge Menemsha Channel will enter its third season in the fall with a new contractor at the helm.

With the dredging of Menemsha Channel still unfinished after two years, the Army Corps of Engineers has terminated its contract with J-Way Inc. of Avon, Ohio.

The Menemsha Channel dredging project is churning away as a Jan. 31 deadline for completion looms again.


Five months after terminating its contract with J-Way Southern Inc., the Army Corps plans to work with the company again to finish dredging the Menemsha channel.

The Army Corps of Engineers terminated its contract with J-Way Inc. Dredging equipment has been left behind in Menemsha Channel and along Lobsterville and West Basin roads.
