Impacts of the Channel Deepening on the Columbia River, a study co-sponsored by the Pacific Northwest Waterways Association (PNWA) and the Port of Portland shows that more than $1.08 billion in public and private investments have been made since the deepening was completed in 2010. Proposed developments could mean an additional $5.15 billion in investments. A newly-signed Chief of Engineers Report from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers clears the way for Port Everglades to begin the next phase of deepening and widening its channels. It also allows the project to be included in federal legislation expected in 2016 that will authorize similar water and navigation-related projects.  Phase Two of the $12.8 million maintenance dredging at the Port of Redwood City's Redwood Creek channel by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' contractors is underway. Completion of Phase Three this winter will restore the channel’s authorized depth of 30 feet for the first time since December 2009.
