The first component of the 3.6 million dollar project is a concrete slab, over a contaminated area of soil. The construction contract was awarded to Fletcher Construction for a little more than 500 thousand dollars. The concrete will also allow Signet to work on six more ships at a time and make it easier to move ships in and out of the water. Mark McAndrews, the Director of the Port of Pascagoula, says, “Today's action was a joint resolution with the Board of Supervisors, awarding a contract for the construction of that slab. The second component of the project is an assembly building, and the third component is the dredging and some bulk-heading at the waterfront.” The project is estimated to create 50 jobs for the community.
