Vermilion Bay/Boston Canal Shore Protection COMPLETE

PROJECT LOCATION:

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The project will stabilize 15 miles of Vermilion Bay shoreline and prevent further regression of the Boston Canal banks. A strip of Vermilion Bay shoreline approximately 25 feet wide by 15 miles long would be planted with single stems of Spartina alterniflora at 3 foot intervals. A rock bulkhead will be installed parallel to the banks of Boston Canal on both sides of the channel from the existing shoreline at the mouth of the channel and extend into the bay. Sediment fences will be installed behind the bulkheads to encourage sedimentation and land accretion.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 01-Jan-1990 )

Complete.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $903,545 , which includes $679,139 for construction first costs, and $146,568 and $77,838 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
