WESTPORT, Conn. -- A request to extend the weekday construction hours until 10 p.m. for work related to the dredging of the Compo Marina basin has been approved, the Westport Department of Public Works announced.
The permit for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the dredging stipulates that in-water work must be completed by Sunday, Feb. 1.
Contractor FGB Construction requested that the weekday work hours be extended in order to complete the project within the specified time period.
This standard permit condition is imposed to protect the fishery and shellfish resources. A significant portion of the work is further limited by tidal cycles.
Erosion and shoreline stabilization at Compo Marina will be significantly improved when the project is complete.
Further questions may be directed to Stephen Edwards at 203-341-1125.
