VVK Realty Seeks Corps Permit for New Bedford Plan

VVK Realty, LLC, is seeking a permit from the USACE to conduct work in conjunction with maintaining and repairing a pier, adding floating docks and moorings and doing other work in Buzzards Bay, New Bedford, Mass.

The project is designed to improve access between navigable waters of Buzzards Bay and additionally provide public access through the creation of a contiguous shoreline access between the subject property and adjacent properties.

Floating docks would serve as the only transient docking from Clark’s Point to the New Bedford Hurricane Barrier to be safely accessible throughout the entirety of the tide cycle.

The work involves maintenance and rehabilitation activities to a previously permitted 140-foot by 10-foot pier within the footprint of the existing structure.

The pilings will be replaced as well as timber structural members, decking and railings. These repairs will be made from shore or by work barge.

In order to allow for access and safe passage for recreational boaters at all tides, the applicant is proposing to add 3,400 square feet of floating docks with a reconfiguration zone, two 175 square feet of gangway systems north and south of the existing pier and installing 12 moorings with helical anchors.
