Scituate Harbor North Jetty Repaired

After sustaining damage during Winter Storm Juno in 2015, the Scituate Harbor North Jetty in Scituate, Massachusetts has been successfully repaired, reports the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District.

The $1.23 million project, issued by the New England District, was recently completed by Classic Site Solutions, Inc. of Framingham, Mass.

The North Jetty at Scituate Harbor extends from Cedar Point on the north side of the entrance channel to the harbor and is an interlocked stone structure approximately 850- feet long,” said Project Engineer Eric Crockett. “The jetty provides protection to the navigational channel and the Harbor.”

Crockett said that the repair work on the jetty consisted of removing and replacing significant volumes of existing stone as well as installing 1,500 tons of new armor stone. The stones ranged in weight from four to eight tons.

The Scituate Harbor Project Deliver Team identified critical areas of the jetty to be repaired, which resulted in the most reuse of the existing stones.

The stone for the project arrived at the site in October 2018. Construction of the jetty began in November and took about 60 days to complete.
