Allen Harbor, RI, Dredging Completed

IndependentRI.com: Boaters who launch from Allen Harbor have received a Christmas present from the town and the Quonset Development Corp. but they won’t find it under any Christmas tree.

After years of boats running aground in the shallow, narrow passageway into Narragansett Bay and small dredging projects that removed some of the sediment, only to have Mother Nature fill it back in, a large-scale dredging project recently wrapped up that should alleviate boaters’ frustrations for years to come.
