      More dredging for the Great Lakes

      The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says dredging work is planned at harbors in Michigan along Lake Huron and Lake Superior. The Corps' Detroit District said Tuesday that a $334,000 contract with Sault Ste. Marie-based MCM Marine Inc. will dredge Lexington Harbor in Sanilac County along Lake Huron. Separately, the Detroit District said a roughly $283,000 contract with Muskegon-based Great Lakes Dock & Materials LLC will dredge Big Bay Harbor and Lac La Belle Harbor along Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula. Work on the projects is expected to begin in mid-October and be completed by mid-November.
