Pier 81 Waterfront Stabilization: Hudson River - New York, NY

Marine Projects
December 2011 through January 2012
Value of work performed: $330,000

EIC Associates removed 200 ft. of fill and debris  a at a collapsed sea wall at Pier 81 on the Hudson River in Manhattan and installed 6” to 2 foot diameter rip rap stone to stabilize the shoreline

The collapse was caused by the failure of timber pile supports for the concrete bulkhead after the earthquake in the summer of 2011.  The HRPT placed Belgian block and misc granite and concrete debris initially to prevent erosion.  EIC’s contract was to remove a 20 ft. piece of unstable concrete bulkhead, the debris, and the remaining fill down to the low water platform, then place filter fabric and rip rap.  Two concrete retaining walls were precast on site and placed at the north and south ends to complete the work.

A future project is contemplated to replace the sea wall, low water platform, and parking lot
