As part of the dredging industry, we are glad to see our fellow contractors able jump to the call and ensure clear navigation for the USNS Comfort as it makes its way to Manhattan.
The ship boats over 1,000 beds and will serve as a relief hospital for non-Coronavirus patients in an effort to ease the pressure on NYC's land-based hospitals.
