United States Army Corps of Engineers Colonel Visit
The Port of Redwood City is pleased to have welcomed Colonel Kimberly Colloton of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and her staff members to the Port earlier this month. Colonel Colloton is the new Commander of the South Pacific Division, headquartered in San Francisco.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is a strategic partner to all U.S. Ports and has approximately 37,000 civilians and soldiers defending the U.S. and delivering engineering services to more than 130 countries worldwide. Most notably related to Port maritime operations, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers supports the U.S. economy by dredging America’s waterways and the construction of infrastructure to ensure the movement of critical commodities.

The visit provided an opportunity for Port staff to educate Colonel Colloton and her team about the Port’s strategic operations benefitting the Silicon Valley region and various other projects and priorities. The Port and the Army Corps are collaborating on a significant federal dredging project to begin in 2019; deepening the harbor channel to support current and potentially larger cargo ships and vessels to call at the Port.
