The Manson Construction Company towing vessel HARRY M is shown moving a derrick barge and work barge out into Gastineau Channel in Juneau in preparation for placing two mooring buoys out in Juneau Harbor. The work is in preparation for starting construction on the new south cruise ship floating berth for large cruise ships in Juneau. Work will continue throughout the winter and the new berth will be ready for cruise ships in May 2016. After the 2016 cruise ship season is finished work will start on the north floating berth which will be ready in May 2017. The completed project will allow simultaneously mooring of two 1000 foot long cruise ships at the new berths. Manson Construction Company of Seattle was selected for the project after submitting a winning bid of 53.7 million dollars. The funds for the construction come from the cruise ship head tax.
