Money Secured for Troy Seawall Stabilization Scheme

The Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) will pay the entire $12.8 million cost of the City of Troy Seawall Stabilization Project, according to the U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer.

Schumer initially secured $6.7 million in federal funding in July 2014 so this stabilization project could begin and this damaged seawall would not threaten to undermine the City of Troy’s waterfront revitalization efforts any further.

“Restoring the Troy Seawall will not only protect the Hudson River waterfront by preventing future flood damage, but also bring scores of economic benefits to the residents and businesses that have come to rely on the waterfront’s incredible development,” said Schumer.

This project will include the placement of structural steel soldier piles drilled and grouted into rock sockets along the entire length of the existing sea wall (approx. 7,000 ft.).

Troy’s seawall was initially constructed in 1922 and underwent repairs in 1978, over 30 years ago. Climate change, increased ice flows, erosion and other naturally occurring events have severely compromised the integrity of the seawall, which protects sewer systems and stabilizes nearby buildings.
