In the coming weeks, the Seawall Project will be using a piece of equipment, called a rock saw, to cut through the existing seawall. This four-foot saw blade will aid removal of portions of the existing seawall concrete face panels to access the soil beneath so it can be stabilized with jet grout. It takes a large piece of equipment to complete this work and the Seawall Project construction team will ensure it is done in a safe and secure manner. This excavation at Waterfront Park will continue next week in preparation for sheet pile installation.

Over the next week, landside sheet pile installation will continue at the work zone south of Colman Dock. Once completed, the equipment used for the sheet pile installation will be transported to the work zone at Waterfront Park. This work is tentatively planned to start late next week. Increased noise and vibration are to be expected.
