City of Cordova Requests Vessel Owners/Operators in the South Harbor Begin Planning Relocation During South Harbor Construction.

The City of Cordova continues to move forward with rebuilding the South Harbor; rebuild is scheduled to begin on September 15, 2023 and run through April 15, 2024.  The project will completely replace the existing South Harbor with new floats and services.

Critical to the project is the relocation of all vessels moored in the South Harbor during the construction period.  All vessels in the South Harbor must be relocated so that construction teams can operate freely and meet the timelines to have the new harbor fully operational at the start of the 2024 fishing season.

Vessel owners and operators must find alternate parking/mooring space outside of the South Harbor.  The North Harbor will not be impacted by the construction project.  SERVS vessels under contract will have priority to move their vessels to the North Harbor to ensure continuity of response capabilities.

The City of Cordova is developing plans for possible vessel parking on City property as well as dry-docking opportunities at the Cordova shipyard.  Additional parking details will be announced as the project develops.

The City appreciates everyone’s interest in this project and looks forward to providing a significant upgrade to the harbor as the economic engine of this community.

“We are thrilled to begin the process of rebuilding the South Harbor, this project will be an incredible asset to the community and the mariners in the region,” said Cordova Harbormaster Tony Schinella.
