Braddock Bay Barrier Beach Works in Full Swing

Braddock Bay, Greece (NY) is undergoing a restoration project that involves dredging portions of the bay and the construction of the barrier beach.

Ongoing barrier beach construction works at the bay are in full swing now and will be completed by the end of the construction season 2016.

Braddock Bay is located on the shore of Lake Ontario and is part of the Rochester Embayment Great Lakes Area of Concern (AoC).

The Braddock Bay Scheme includes construction of the beach barrier:

  • 1,675-foot long continuous rubblemound breakwater spine, as a core for the beach, with two 180-foot long rubblemound terminal groins attached;
  • 3 -acre headland beach;
  • Two 150-foot long headland rubblemound breakwaters.

The project is being conducted through an interagency agreement between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and USACE in close partnership with the Town of Greece and the Rochester Embayment Remedial Action Plan Oversight Committee.
