The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, has awarded a contract to GeoGradel of Toledo, OH to repair a sections of the Port Clinton Harbor East Jetty that was damaged during Superstorm Sandy.
The contractor will begin in-water work around July 5 and should be completed by late-November.
“The Port Clinton Harbor East Jetty experienced extensive damage during Sandy due to oversized waves and the extreme angle they were hitting the structure,” said Captain Kelly Polashenski, USACE project manager.
“Because the damage was caused by Sandy, the jetty was eligible of funding to repair the structure using Superstorm Sandy appropriations.”
The proposed project consists of repairs to the jetty head by replacing existing damaged structure with new rubblemound armor stone overlay, a 4-ft wide cast-in-place concrete walkway with new light foundation and returning the structure crest to the original elevation.
