The Corps of Engineers awards Lorain Breakwater repair contract
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District began repairs to the Lorain breakwater located in Lake Erie in the Port of Lorain, Lorain County, Ohio, on May 12. The contractor, Great Lakes Dock and Materials, LLC, from Muskegon, Michigan, will complete the 2017 cell repair, consisting of a 50 linear foot void with a stone base and vertical sheet pile on top. A cell of the Lorain breakwater was removed in 2017 due to it falling in disrepair. Additionally, any remaining cracks will be repaired and solar powered lights will be added across both sides of the entire breakwater.
