Buffalo South Breakwater Repairs on the Way

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District recently awarded a contract to Ryba Marine Construction to repair a portion of the Buffalo South breakwater.

The 10,200-foot Buffalo South breakwater protects the Buffalo Harbor and nearby dredged sediment confined disposal facilities.

The south breakwater is exposed to deep water wave and ice action, which has caused a 1,000-foot section at the south end to breakdown and unravel.

Navigation is one of the Corps of Engineers’ earliest Civil Works missions,” said USACE, Buffalo District Commander Lt. Col. Jason Toth. “The investment to repair a degraded reach of the Buffalo South breakwater will ensure safe navigation for vessels and protect the harbor.”

According to the Corps, they will use work plan funding from fiscal years 2017 and 2018 for the repair project.

The awarded contract covers 325 feet of the 1,000 feet of critical repair. There are two options that could repair another 225 feet of the breakwater under the current contract, if fiscal year 2019 work plan funding is received. The remaining 450 feet of critical repair could be funded in the fiscal year 2019 work plan or a future work plan.
