Oswego Breakwater Repaired
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for the completion of the Oswego Harbor Detached Breakwater repair work, on Wednesday, November 25, in Oswego, NY.
The Oswego Harbor Detached Breakwater experienced extensive damage during Superstorm Sandy due to oversized waves and the extreme angle they were hitting the structure.
Because the damage was caused by Sandy, the breakwater was eligible of funding to repair the structure using Superstorm Sandy appropriations.
The work was completed a year ahead of schedule by Durocher Marine Division/Kokosing Construction Company, using a combination of armor stone material from the Jamesville Quarry, NY and the Rock of Ages Quarry, VT and 973, 16-ton dolos formed and poured by Lakeland Concrete Products, Lima, NY.
