Repairing Great Sodus Bay seawall

The Great Lakes Dock & Materials will repair a breakwater in the Great Sodus Harbor, Wayne County, NY, under a $3.86m contract. 

Under the official plan, the company will repair approximately 525 feet of the Charles Point steel sheet pile wall.

A gap in the breakwater is causing increased erosion to the land behind – the repair is set to provide better protection.

However, construction will start later this fall.

“The continued Lake Ontario high water events of recent years have accelerated erosion to this area – which is particularly bad and in need of immediate repairs and shoreline protection,” said Lt. Col. Eli Adams, Buffalo District commander.

“It is a critical time to invest in harbor maintenance because it creates a resilient shoreline that can withstand future water level highs and lows.” 

“Repairing the Great Sodus harbor is directly tied to the long-term economic growth, quality of life, and environmental health of the harbor.”

“Thankfully, we have a great team.”

Earlier this year, the Buffalo District received $4.5M in federal funding to construct the project.
