J.E. McAmis has just released a couple of photos from the Mouth of the Columbia River North Jetty (MCR North Jetty) project.

The new photos show the progress made in building the MCR North Jetty.

According to the company, McAmis crews are completing the jetty terminus and will have placed 185,000 thousand tons by the end of the 2019 season.

The ongoing repairs are the second phase of the Army Corps’ plan to repair three jetties at the mouth of the Columbia River.

USACE has already completed two years of work on the mile-long “A” Jetty at a cost of approx. $30 million.

Following the completion of the North Jetty scheme later this year, the Corps will begin stage three of the project, rehabilitating the six-mile-long South Jetty.

These works will take place between 2019 and 2023.
