The Point Judith Harbor east jetty in Narragansett, Rhode Island, will be repaired under the terms of a $627,000.00 contract issued recently by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District.
Work will be accomplished by Atlantic Support Installations, Inc., of Hopedale, Mass. Construction is scheduled to start on or about Feb. 15, 2014 and take about three months to complete. The contract was awarded on Dec. 19, 2013.
The work for this project consists of repairing the East Jetty at the Point Judith Harbor of Refuge in Narragansett. Repairs involve the mobilization and demobilization, and the furnishing, 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 jetty.
“The repairs will be performed to restore the southerly portion of the East Jetty to the original profiles and cross-sections,” said Project Manager Michael 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.”
Mobilization of equipment and rehabilitation of the jetty may require a combination of land and 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.
