Kovilic Construction Bags Sakonnet Breakwater Contract (USA)

The Sakonnet Harbor Breakwater in Little Compton, Rhode Island, will be repaired under the terms of a $594,500.00 contract issued recently by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District.

Work will be accomplished by Kovilic Construction Company, Inc., of Franklin Park, Ill. Construction is scheduled to start on or about Feb. 15, 2014 and take about three months to complete. The contract was awarded on Dec. 10, 2013.

The work for this project consists of repairing the breakwater, located on the west side of the Sakonnet Harbor in Little Compton. Repairs involve mobilization and demobilization, and the furnishment, delivery and placement of new stone to replace stones displaced during Hurricane Sandy in October 2012 and to fill in existing gaps and low points along the breakwater.

“The repairs will be performed to restore the damaged sections of the breakwater to the original profiles and cross-sections,” said Project Manager Mike Walsh, of the Corps’ New England District, Programs/Project Management Division in Concord, Mass.Repairs will require substantial moving and manipulation of existing stones to obtain the required interlocking placement.”

The Sakonnet Harbor breakwater is an 800-foot-long stone structure with a crest height of 8.0 feet above mean low water, and a crest width of 15 feet. Mobilization of equipment and rehabilitation of the breakwater may require a combination of marine construction methods and resources.

The project will be managed by the Corps and all work will be accomplished under the supervision of a Corps’ Quality Assurance Representative to assure compliance with contract requirements.
