USA: Corps Awards Contract for Newburyport South Jetty Repair

The Newburyport Harbor south jetty Phase II repair project in Newburyport, Mass. will be completed under the terms of a $2,588,414.00 contract issued recently by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District.

Work will be accomplished by Classic Site Solutions, Inc. of Springfield, Mass. Construction is scheduled to start on or about Dec. 19, 2013 and take about three months to complete. The contract was awarded on Nov. 19, 2013.

“The work consists of repairing portions of the 1,400-foot-long jetty that was damaged during Tropical Storm Irene and Hurricane Sandy,” said Project Manager Jack Karalius, of the Corps’ New England District, Programs/Project Management Division in Concord, Mass. “Approximately 12,000 tons of 6- to 12-ton armor stone will be placed for the project. Repairs were begun on the first 600 feet of the jetty during the winter of 2012-2013 and will need to be finished under this contract.”

The work includes replacing displaced core and armor stone to fill in existing gaps in the jetty. Repairs will require substantial moving and rehandling of existing stones to obtain the required interlocking placement.

Equipment and stone delivery and access to the jetty may be performed from land, water or a combination. Protection of piping plovers and their habitat limits any work by land from Sept. 1 to March 31. About 5,200 feet of sand fencing will be installed along the access/haul route after construction.

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.
