J.E. McAmis has just released this beautiful photo from the Columbia River North Jetty Rehabilitation Project, adding that they are on track to complete 180,000 tons of placement this year.
In an effort to rebuild the North Jetty at the mouth of the Columbia River (MCR North Jetty), the company is reshaping the existing jetty, extending it 250′ further into the Pacific.
The stones are being trucked in from domestic sources, as well as barged down 13,000 tons at a time, from a source in Canada.
According to the contractor, the stones in the stockpile range from around 10 tons up to 32 tons each.
The ongoing repairs are the second phase of the USACE’s plan to repair three jetties at the mouth of the Columbia River.
