Walnut Creek Marina Works About to Begin

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) has just announced that a construction project to rebuild the supporting sidewalls at the Walnut Creek Marina in Fairview, Erie County, is expected to begin within the next week.

The $3.77 million project is expected to take 12-15 months to complete as in-stream work will be suspended during the Steelhead migration from late fall to early spring. Chivers Construction Company of Fairview, PA, was awarded the contract.

The first phase of the project involves constructing a new 800-foot concrete panel wall encasing the existing, deteriorated channel wall on the east bank. The wall will connect to a new fishing pier that meets standards for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The second phase involves removing approximately 850 feet of rock riprap slope protection along the west bank and replacing it with a permanent underwater keyway and rock platform, which will be used for future maintenance and dredging of the creek bottom.

The new structure will also provide improved slope protection for the stream bank.
