GLDD Scores Another Coastal Protection Contract

Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation announced yesterday the receipt of an award for a $23.4 million contract with an additional $11.2 million in options to construct a beach berm and dune at Fire Island Inlet to Moriches Inlet, New York.

Fire Island is a barrier island that helps protect back-bay communities along Great South Bay and Moriches Bay.

Super Storm Sandy caused extensive damage to Fire Island, with the majority of the dunes on the island either flattened or severely eroded.

Work on this project includes repairing the berms and dunes, which will stabilize the island and will help mitigate the risk of incurring damage from a future storm, both on Fire Island and on the mainland communities that it helps protect.
