The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, has awarded a $4.7 million contract to continue repairs on the west arrowhead breakwater located at the Port of Oswego, New York.       

The contract was awarded to Dean Marine and Excavating, Inc., based in Mount Clemens, Michigan, on May 15, 2019.

According to USACE, the contractor is anticipated to begin work during summer 2019 and includes a 600 feet repair along the lake side of the breakwater.

“The Port of Oswego is a vital navigation channel that connects commercial ships and recreational boats from the Great Lakes to Central New York, helping to drive local tourism and contributing to the economy,” said U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

“The completion of the arrowhead breakwater repairs will help ensure that ships can continue to safely navigate through Oswego Harbor, and I’m glad that this project is moving forward.”

During 2018, the Corps of Engineers repaired 475 feet of the 2,700 feet Oswego Harbor west arrowhead breakwater. This contract award will allow repair work to continue this year, said USACE.

The breakwater will allow for safer passage for commercial and recreational traffic, while also serving as a means to dissipate wave action in Oswego Harbor.
