The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, and its contractor, Dean Marine & Excavating, Inc., are scheduled to resume repairs of the Rochester Harbor east pier, located in Rochester, New York, in April 2021. 

Repairs to the structure, under the current contract, include the concrete cap and pier lighting and are expected to be completed in May 2021. 

"The east pier, commonly referred to as the Summerville Pier, is a key piece of infrastructure for commercial and recreational navigation in Rochester Harbor," said Lex Barker, USACE Buffalo District, project manager.  “We understand that construction has caused impacts to recreation, and we appreciate the community for their support as we repair an aging and severely degraded pier.”  

The Rochester Harbor east pier was constructed in 1908, and sections of the shoreward and lake ends were reconstructed in 1954 and 1971. 

The Corps of Engineers is using available funds to repair about 600 feet of the roughly 1,000-foot degraded section of the Rochester Harbor east pier.  The section under repair is in the middle of previously repaired sections, and is close to the original construction, where the concrete cap is in poor condition and is structurally degraded. 

Repair of the remaining approximately 400 feet of degraded reach of the east pier would be dependent upon receiving additional funding.

USACE Buffalo District delivers world class engineering solutions to the Great Lakes Region, the Army and the Nation in order to ensure national security, environmental sustainability, water resource management, and emergency assistance during peace and war.
