Repairs Begin on Fairport East Breakwater

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Buffalo District has begun restoring the Fairport Harbor East Breakwater, Lake County, Ohio to repair the $5.5 million worth of damages caused by Superstorm Sandy, October 2012.

The Fairport Harbor East Breakwater experienced extensive damage during Sandy because of the oversized waves and the extreme angle they were hitting the structure,” said Geoff Hintz, USACE project manager. Because the damage was caused by Sandy, the breakwater was eligible of funding to repair the structure using Superstorm Sandy appropriations.

Repair work includes two navigation light structures and 1,380 linear feet of breakwater to be completed by Huffman Equipment Rental Inc., Willoughby, Ohio through the placement of armor stone mined from Hanson Aggregates, Sandusky, Ohio.
