Trucano wins contract to build breakwater at Douglas Island

Posted: Thursday, August 19, 2010

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a contract worth more than $600,000 to Juneau's Trucano Construction to build a floating breakwater at the small boat harbor on Douglas Island.

According to a news release from the Corps, Trucano's role will be to drill into the rocky seabed 30 to 40 feet below the water then drive steel plates in to hold the breakwater in place. It stated that this will be the final phase of the breakwater project and is expected to be completed this fall.

The breakwater is to help lessen wave energy hitting the harbor, the release states.
