Since its founding in 1969, Continental has provided marine construction, initially focusing on material handling facilities in the Mississippi and Ohio River basins. Through the years, Continental has expanded its scope of marine construction services - now encompassing dock construction, wharves, mooring structures, etc. - to both public and private entities. We continue to serve the interior river basins throughout most of the continental United States and now include both Gulf and Atlantic coasts as well as the Caribbean.

Port of Itawamba County | Fulton, Mississippi
1 | Barge Unloading Facility

Itawamba County was in need of expanded barge load/unload capabilities at their industrial park. The growth of the wood pellet market and the abundance of timber readily shipped made this port expansion an easy decision. Continental was chosen as the General Contractor due to our expertise in waterway construction and best competitive bid. This project was constructed during the worst portion of the year, December through April. Continental met the schedule and the facility was on line for the first shipment.
