TWO SEAWALL PROJECTS



Two seawall projects are currently underway at East Ferry. The Cardi Corporation began work this week for the town of Jamestown on the southern section of the East Ferry seawall. The first stage will be the installation of a cofferdam (top photo) between the pier and the boat ramp. Once in place, workers will then remove the old seawall and excavate for the new concrete footings. The concrete footings and reinforced concrete seawall will be constructed in sections. Work on the $398,805 project is expected to be completed by Memorial Day. On the north end of the East Ferry (bottom photo), the state DOT has a contractor repairing the seawall due to damage from Hurricane Irene in 2011. The original contract specified repair of 100 feet of seawall, but that was extended to 600 feet due to damage from Hurricane Sandy.
