U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, has introduced a plan for the Craney Island shoreline protection program.
The project includes the construction of approximately 3840 feet of shoreline protection at the Craney Island Dredged Material Management Area (CIDMMA), located in Portsmouth, Virginia.
The main goal of this work, which consists of the replacement of the existing (randomly placed) concrete rubble with six engineered riprap breakwaters, is to protect up to 4100 linear feet of shoreline along the west shore of CIDMMA.
The estimated cost of this project is between $5 mln and $10 mln, and the solicitation will be posted on/about February 28, 2014.
