Contract Awarded for Nantucket Jetty

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded Mohawk Northeast Inc. with a $10.6 million contract for jetty repair in Nantucket Harbor.

In announcing the contract last Friday, Senator Bill Keating said: “As recent winters have become more and more severe, the timing of this award couldn’t be better. It is critical that our harbors have the appropriate protections during both the winter and summer high season.”

According to the award announcement, the work consists of repairing both the east and west jetty at the entrance of Nantucket Harbor which were damaged during Hurricane Sandy.

Repairs will require approximately 32,300 tons of 2-4 ton stone to bring structures back to authorized dimensions. Jetties will be pulled apart to below water line where damage is less extensive and rebuilt to meet construction tolerances.

It is estimated that Mohawk Northeast will begin the work by November, with the project scheduled to take 8-12 months.

Nantucket Harbor is located on the western side of Nantucket Island in Nantucket Sound approximately 25 miles Southeast of Hyannis, Massachusetts, and 22 miles East of Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. The east and west jetty extend into Nantucket Sound and provide protection to vessels transiting into Nantucket Harbor.
