RC&D Nets $5.4 Mln Contract from USACE

Repairs to the shoreline stone revetment at Camp Cronin fishing area in Narragansett, Rhode Island, and emergency repairs to the adjacent East Shore Arm Breakwater of the Point Judith Harbor of Refuge Federal Navigation Project, also in Narragansett, will be completed under the terms of a $5.4 million contract issued recently by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District.

Work will be accomplished by RC&D, Inc., of Pawtucket, RI. Construction is scheduled to start on or about Oct. 20, 2014 and take about 19 months to complete. The contract was awarded on Aug. 27, 2014.

Work consists of constructing an ocean shoreline stone revetment at the Camp Cronin fishing area in Narragansett and constructing emergency repairs to the adjacent East Shore Arm Breakwater of the Point Judith Harbor of Refuge Federal navigation project,” said Project Manager Jennifer Flanagan of the Corps’ New England District, Programs/Project Management Division in Concord, Mass.The existing shoreline and breakwater were both damaged during Hurricane Sandy in October 2012.”  

The shoreline revetment work involves excavation, furnishing and placing gravel bedding, stone filter materials, underlayer stone, 2-ton stone, armor stone, cobble fill, crushed stone, and parking lot fill. Work will involve removing, stockpiling, and resetting existing cobble and boulders currently at the site.

Repairs to the breakwater will require the furnishment, delivery, and placement of new armor stone (up to 15-tons per stone) to replace stones displaced during Hurricane Sandy, and the filling in of existing gaps and low points along the breakwater.

The repairs will be performed to restore the breakwater to the original profiles and cross-sections. Repairs will require substantial moving and manipulation of both new and existing stones to achieve both the required interlocking placement and design grades. The project will be managed by the Corps under the supervision of a Corps’ Quality Assurance Representative to assure compliance with contract requirements.
