The Project includes the rehabilitation of the Pier's structural foundation through steel sheet pile replacement, installation of new concrete walkways and asphalt driveways, landscaping improvements, and replacement of site utilities and other surface improvements. Project will result in up to approximately 3,133.5 CY of fill, including 1045 linear feet of new sheet piles, 2,901 CY of sheetpile and pea gravel in the interstitial space behind (landward) of the new sheets, 8 CY of sheetpile fill in the northwest corner repair area, 154 CY of Rip Rap along the west side rip-rap repair area, and 70.5 CY of Rip-Rap along the southeast corner shoreline. Project will also result in a total of approximately 593.5 cubic yards of debris will be removed below MHWL, which includes 369 CY along the east and north sides of the Pier and the northwest corner, 154 CY along the west side rip-rap repair area, and 70.5 CY at the southeast shoreline rip-rap installation. In addition, up to 15 linear feet of sheet piles may need to be removed in the event that they cannot be repaired in-situ at the northwest corner.
