Abrams Village SCH Wharf Reconstruction

Abrams Village DFO-SCH existing wharf structure #401 has reached the end of its safe and useful life cycle and requires complete replacement. The existing structure forms a "C" comprised of a marginal wharf in the East-West direction along the shoreline combined with a pier extending to the North and finally an "Ell" back in the East-West direction. The wharf structure is comprised of timber piles with timber sheathing, cross bracing, fenders, wales, wheel guards and a reinforced concrete deck all which will be completely removed and disposed of. The proposed new reconstruction consists of a Berlin wall construction for the marginal wharf with steel H-piles, precast reinforced concrete panels, and pre-cast concrete deadmen. Excavation of earthen material is required to facilitate the installation of the Berlin wall. The new pier and "Ell" will extend out to the northwest and will consist of reinforced concrete end bearing and steel batter piles along with a reinforced concrete deck and a closed-face timber pile fender system.
