Officials in Rochester are celebrating the completion of a $1.5 million project to dredge sediment from the Genesee River to ease navigation.
For the first time in more than two years, the cargo ship Stephen B. Roman will dock at the Port of Rochester during a ceremony Monday. The ship's owner had been using smaller boats because of sediment buildup.
More than 200,000 cubic yards of sediment has been dredged from the Genesee River.
