Dutra Secures Fire Island Contract

The Dutra Group, San Rafael, California, was awarded a $47.9 million firm-fixed-price contract to stabilize Fire Island by placing 2,500,000 cubic yards of sand for initial construction of the Smith Point County Park reach of the Fire Island Inlet to Montauk Point project area.

Dutra Group, made up of three distinct but integrated companies, Dutra Dredging, Construction, and Materials, won the contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District.

This project will include planting dune grass and creating two bird habitat areas landward of the beach placement area.

Contractor will dredge sand from an offshore borrow area, located 1.5 miles from the beach at Quantuck Bay, which is between 8-14 miles from the project area.

Work will be performed on Fire Island, New York, with an estimated completion date of April 20, 2015.
