Second Phase of Camp Cronin Project Kicks Off

The second phase of the Camp Cronin stone revetment and East Shore Arm breakwater repair project is about to begin, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, informs. 

The scheme will be completed under the terms of a $8.5 million contract, awarded to RC&D, Inc., of Pawtucket, RI, last year.

The construction project started in late October 2014 with a projection of 19 months to complete, over two construction seasons (October 1, 2014 to May 15, 2015 and October 1, 2015 to May 15, 2016) to avoid impact to recreation.

During the first portion of the project, shoreline revetment work was performed that involved 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 involved removing, stockpiling and resetting existing cobble and boulders that were 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.
