Serving the Area Since 1971
Magruder Construction Co. purchased its first Mud Cat dredge in 1971, opening a new facet of its business: dredging soil, sand and sludge. Then in 1986, it added a larger dredge, the "Mary M." In addition, we just added an even larger dredge to our fleet, the “Houston T”. We have effectively used these dredges to assist in maintaining major Mississippi and Missouri inlets, lakes and waterways. In 2008, a major flood brought on the need to create or reinforce levees and dredge harbors and inlets from the silt that had accumulated. Magruder Construction was there to assist our neighbors with these dredging operations and help keep the Mississippi River open as America's water highway. We have proudly worked closely with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on many projects such as the ones shown below.
Over the past 30 years we have developed a highly-skilled team of personnel who balance professionalism with productivity to give you the best value for your projects. In addition, our design team can assist you in the engineering of your project.
