The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District has awarded a $6.1 million contract to Ryba Marine for repairs to the Buffalo North breakwater over the next three years.

The work is slated to start early August once the threatened Common Tern nesting season is complete.

The end cap repair is expected to be completed by the end of the 2019 construction season.

This project is 100 percent federally funded and will be done in phases starting with repairs to the south end cap,” said Geoffrey Hintz, Army Corps of Engineers- Buffalo District’s project manager for the repair. “In addition to the south end cap repair there is sufficient funding for 65 feet of breakwater rubble-mound repair going north from the cap.”

As further federal funds are received, the next repair will occur at the north end, followed by rubble-mound repairs between the two ends, Hintz added.

The south end of the breakwater structure consists of an underwater timber crib capped with concrete,” Hintz said. “Some of the timber cribbing has unraveled, so the entire cap will be removed, the timbers repaired, and a new concrete cap poured.”
