Westshore Waterways Improvement Project
The City of Tampa's Westshore Waterways Improvement Project will include removal of sediment buildup in a number of canals located on the west side of the Interbay Peninsula. Maintenance dredging of these canals, few of which have had routine maintenance since originally excavated and filled into finger channels in the 1940s and 1950s, will improve the environmental quality of the Bay and promote tidal flushing within the canals.
The City of Tampa has selected Duncan Seawall Dock and Boatlift, LLC, via applicable State and Federal statutes, as the Construction Manager at Risk for the work. Permitting activities and preparation of a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) proposal are underway. Dredge activities will begin subsequent to finalization of permits and acceptance of the GMP.
Project updates will be provided on this website. Please check routinely for any updated information on the City's Westshore Waterways Improvement Project.
