The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, has announced a $2.1 million contract for repairs to the Lorain breakwater, located in Lake Erie in the Port of Lorain, Lorain County, Ohio.

The contract was awarded on September 9, 2019 to Great Lakes Dock & Materials, L.L.C., from Muskegon, Michigan.

“I am pleased to see that the Army Corps of Engineers will direct this important funding to strengthen the Lorain breakwater, which has been in desperate need of repairs,” said Ohio Representative Marcy Kaptur.

“A breakwater represents the first line of defense against the turbulent tides of Lake Erie for many of our lake front communities. As we face the reality of rising lake levels, diligence is required to insure the safety and navigability of many harbors in the Great Lakes region. I appreciate the Army Corps of Engineers’ partnership and attention to this important investment for the City of Lorain and its commercial and recreational harbor users and look forward to future efforts that have a direct, substantive effect on our lake front communities.”

A cell of the Lorain breakwater was removed in 2017 due to it falling in disrepair. This contract will allow for the completion of the 2017 cell repair, consisting of a 50 linear foot void with a stone base and vertical sheet pile on top.

Construction will start and be completed during 2020, USACE said.
