The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District has just announced that the West Arrowhead breakwater work – essential to providing safe navigation in Oswego Harbor (NY) – is proceeding well and on schedule.

The work being conducted consists of repairing 600 linear feet along the lake side of the breakwater.

The contractor, Dean Marine and Excavating, Inc. won this $4.7 million contract back in May 2019. Work on the project started on July 30, with the completion planned for September 2019.

Prior to this project, in 2018, the Corps of Engineers successfully repaired 475 feet of the Oswego Harbor west arrowhead breakwater.

The West Arrowhead breakwater runs 2,700 feet out toward the historic west pier head lighthouse, and protects the deep draft, commercial harbor for stakeholders, including the Port of Oswego, U.S. Coast Guard, NRG Energy, Sprague Energy, Lafarge Cement, Essroc Cement, and private marinas.

When fully repaired, 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.
