Prospect Avenue Bulkhead Restoration and Shoreline Erosion Protection

BULKHEAD DESIGN »

Location: Sea Cliff, New York
Client: Nassau County Department of Public Works
Construction Cost: $1,800,000

The project involved survey, mapping, site inventory, geotechnical, soils, structural and foundation analysis, preparation of final plans and specifications, securing NYS DEC tidal wetland permit, bid analysis, and construction inspection and support services for the replacement of 1,800’ of timber bulkhead with a cantilevered steel sheet pile bulkhead extending from Tappan Beach Pool northward to the southern limit of Rum point Parklet.

Additional work included gabion erosion protection at all pipe outfalls including the southern shoreline of Rum Point Parklet, restoration of parklet, landscaping, sidewalks and aluminum ship rail for the length of the project. The key to the successful completion and ongoing service of the bulkhead was the preparation of a geotechnical report that both identified and predicted the failure of the existing bulkhead and made possible the use of the cantilevered design.

Sands Point Preserve, Shoreline Improvement

BULKHEAD DESIGN »

Location: Sands Point, New York
Client: Nassau County Department of Public Works
Completion Date: 2008
Construction Cost: $500,000

The project included a master plan for the improvement of the shoreline at Sands Point Preserve. The existing shoreline erosion was in poor to failed condition. In order to stabilize the shoreline, several alternatives were considered. The alternatives ranged from performing minor repairs to the existing deteriorating concrete seawall to developing completely new erosion protection systems.

It was determined that in all zones except for the zone in front of the Falaise Manor, the most cost effective erosion protection system would consist on a stone revetment in conjunction with slope flattening. For the zone adjacent to the Falaise Manor, the recommended alternative was a stone revetment with a retaining wall land sand fill. Prime consultant for this project.
