Abstract : The authorized project currently serving Hampton Roads provides for a channel 45 feet deep and 1,000 feet wide in the lower Chesapeake Bay (Thimble Shoal) to Hampton Roads. In Hampton Roads, channels 45 feet deep with widths of from 800 to 1,500 feet provide access to the Norfolk and Western coal-loading facility in Norfolk and the CSX coal-loading facility in Newport News. Channels of lesser depths are also maintained up the Elizabeth River. Maintenance of the existing channels and anchorages inside Hampton Roads Harbor, including permit dredging, requires the removal of approximately 4 to 5 million cubic yards of dredged material annually.
