Corps Awards Contract for Green Harbor Jetties Repair (USA)

The Green Harbor East and West jetties in Marshfield, Mass., will be repaired under the terms of a $1,177,400.00 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 in late May or early June 2014 and take about four months to complete. The contract was awarded on Feb. 10, 2014.

Green Harbor in Marshfield is situated in the northwestern end of Cape Cod Bay, about 30 miles southeast of Boston and nine miles north of Plymouth Harbor. The work involves maintenance, by way of making repairs, to bring the structures back to their authorized dimensions and full functionality, repairing damage sustained during Hurricane Sandy and subsequent nor’ east storms.

Approximately seven separate areas of the east and west jetties will be repaired,” said Project Manager Bill Kavanaugh, of the Corps’ New England District, Programs/Project Management Division in Concord, Mass. “The work involves a combination of acquiring and placing new stone, reusing some displaced stone, and installing sheet piling to sand-tighten a section of the landward end of the east jetty.

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