W.C. Fore Trucking lands $19.1M port elevation project

GULFPORT — A $19.1 million contract has been awarded by the Port of Gulfport to elevate the first 43 acres of the West Pier to 25 feet.

The Sun Herald reports W.C. Fore Trucking Inc. of Biloxi will be hauling roughly 200 loads of dirt a day to the Port of Gulfport.

Officials say it will take almost 1.5 million tons of dirt to raise the acreage from its current elevation of 10 feet.

Fore was the lowest of 11 bidders for the job.

Elevation of the entire 180-acre pier is scheduled to be finished by June 2017.
