Eastern Revetment & Main Breakwater Repair

In conjunction with W. F. Baird and Associates Ltd., the Hammond Marina will be conducting and supervising repairs and improvements to marina infrastructure in order to maintain the Marina for the enjoyment and use of our patrons, visitors and the Hammond Community.

Work will include repair of rubble mound structures near the Hammond Marina including 540 linear feet of revetment and 1,070 linear feet of breakwater. The project involves placing new armor stone over the existing structures, salvaging and reuse of existing stone, a cast-in-place concrete sea wall, modifications to an aid to navigation, and an intake pipe relieving platform.

Work is set to get underway in July and will continue for several months. The Contractor will be erecting and maintaining temporary vessel traffic lanes for the safety of marina users during construction. Please refer to this page often to determine if any construction work will interfere with your intended plans at the Marina and to keep apprised of work updates.

Revetment & Repair Update Log

Work on the Eastern Revetment and Main Breakwater repair project will begin the week of August 26, 2019. Initial work involves the installation of micropiles and a relieving platform to protect an existing water intake pipe. The work zone will be located between the main breakwater and Docks ‘X’ and ‘W’. There will be a minimum 40-foot clearance between the construction area and the docks to allow for two-way boat traffic during the installation period.

The construction area will be off limits to boaters and marked with white and orange buoys with a painted diamond and cross every 100 feet. Marine Radio Channel ‘13’ will be available for large boats to contact the Contractor’s boat captain in charge of the barges if more room is needed for maneuvering between the docks and the construction.

Following the installation of the relieving platforms, the Contractor is scheduled to begin the repair of the Eastern Revetment and Main Breakwater the week of September 3, 2019. The Contractor plans on working seven days a week as weather allows.
