USACE: Brooklyn Coastal Scheme Progresses Well

The U.S. Army Corps of engineers, New York District, has just released this beautiful photo from the Sea Gate coastal project in Brooklyn, where the USACE is constructing four T-groins to reduce erosion.

These operations are mainly benefiting the larger Coney Island coastal-storm risk reduction project immediately east of the area that has been providing storm risk reduction and public recreational benefits since 1995.

Under the $25.2 million contract, the crews will use roughly 100,000 tons of stones, varying from small bedding stone to stones ranging upwards of eight tons, to construct the T-groins.

The project also includes the placement of roughly 125,000 cubic yards of sand, with sand coming from the Gravesend Bay side of Sea Gate as well as dredged from the Rockaway Inlet Federal Navigation Channel.
