Block Island Old Harbor Bulkhead-Repair Contract Awarded
September 5, 2011
Block Island Times: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded an $846,600 contract to Grove Construction Inc. of Hopedale, Massachusetts, to install a new bulkhead and dock on the eastern side of Old Harbor.
The renovation of the East Dock will begin in early October and will mark the final phase in the project to fully restore the Old Harbor docks, which had fallen into disrepair. The town-owned West and South docks were replaced last winter and a new bulkhead was installed.
