Steel sheet piles were used in an underwater internal bracing system. Also, the new structure was filled with a few thousand tons of clear stone and scour stone.

Furthermore, all equipment was placed on barges for this marine construction project on Lake Michigan.

Equipment to install the sheet piles includes the barges, a boom crane, tugboats, loaders and excavators.
