Celebration Event Marks Completion of Camp Cronin Project

Col. William Conde, New England District Commander, recently joined Senator Jack Reed, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and partners Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management and HUD in celebrating the completion of the Camp Cronin Restoration Project during a ceremony in Point Judith, Rhode Island.

Hurricane Sandy damaged portions of the Point Judith Harbor of Refuge project. Funds provided in the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013 were used to make necessary repairs to the East Jetty, the Camp Cronin Fishing area shoreline, and the East Shore Arm Breakwater.

A $5.4 million contract was awarded in August 2014 to protect the federal portion of the shoreline with the construction of stone revetment at the Camp Cronin Fishing Area and to perform repairs to the East Shore Arm breakwater due to Hurricane Sandy damage,” said Col. Conde during his remarks.

“In October that same year, an option to repair the state portion of the stone revetment at the Fishing Area was awarded with Rhode Island DEM funds via a HUD grant in the amount of $3 million.”

The construction work spanned over a time period to accommodate specific circumstances.

Construction started in late October 2014 and was expected to take about 19 months to complete, over three construction seasons, according to Col. Conde.

The repairs restored the breakwater to the original profile and cross-section. Repairs required substantial moving and manipulation of both new and existing stones to achieve both the required interlocking between stones and design grades.
