Description: Lloyd Engineering, Inc. (LEI) provided design and construction management, and USACE permitting assistance for a new barge dock. This design used an innovative, cost-reducing solution for the shoreline stabilization. In-lieu of a bulkhead wall, LEI was able to use a sloped shoreline, with retention protection. The design included a pile-supported barge dock, mooring/breasting dolphins, dredging, and shoreline protection. LEI recently completed a structural inspection and repairs on the dock after damage to a barge impact.
