Grand Canal Dredging Project
City of Newport Beach
Phase 1 of the Grand Canal Dredging Project is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, December 7. This first portion of the project dredges the area between South Bay Front and Park Avenue. The tides will play a significant role in completing this project and extended hours have been permitted.

Area residents and visitors should be mindful of the heavy equipment, construction materials, and the work taking place in the area, which may require restricting pedestrian access to the boardwalk. During construction, boats will not be allowed in or through this portion of the canal.

Work will not be performed while the boat parade is running in the evenings of December 14 through December 18. In addition, no work will occur on December 25 or January 1. The estimated completion for the project is in January 2017 however, inclement weather may cause a delay.

We appreciate your patience as we improve the area. If you have any questions or concerns about the project, please contact the Project Inspector, Marcus Puglisi (949-644-3331 or or the Project Manager, Peter Tauscher (949-644-3316 or
