Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host an Open House Tuesday, July 16, 2019, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Alki Community Center in Seattle.

This Open House is an opportunity for the community to learn about the Emma Schmitz Seawall Replacement project, located at 4503 Beach Dr. SW in West Seattle, said USACE.

The project will replace the existing 500-foot-long seawall constructed in the 1920s that has experienced significant erosion and damage from storm events.

The new seawall will be a “soldier pile” (system of vertical piles spaced at a regular interval with material in between to create a wall) design, built a few feet seaward and a few feet higher than the existing seawall, and equipped with safety handrails that the current seawall lacks.

This design will minimize the impact on the beach, address rising seawater concerns and create better contours for the restoration landscaping on the landward portion of the overlook area. We anticipate construction in mid-2020,” said USACE’s Seattle District in its release.
