Reconstruction of Nantucket Harbor’s east and west jetties will begin this month, according to the Nantucket Inquirer & Mirror. The work is scheduled to be completed in 8 months.

The completed jetties will be a “more formal structure,” featuring sloping sides with a relatively flat top,” according to Dave Fronzuto, Nantucket’s emergency preparedness coordinator.  The jetties will also be raised on both sides to about 10” to deal with sea level rise.
