NARRAGANSETT â€“ The Point Judith Harbor east jetty will be repaired under a new $627,000 contract recently issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District.
Construction on the jetty is scheduled to start around Feb. 15 and will take approximately three months to complete.
According to the U.S. Army Corps, repairs involve the mobilization and demobilization, and the furnishing, delivery, and placement of new stone to replace those stones displaced during Hurricane Sandy in October 2012. Stones will also be used to â€śfill inâ€ť existing gaps and low points along the jetty.
