Entrance Breakwater and Shore Protection Reconstruction at the North Rustico Small Craft Harbour, Prince Edward Island

The existing entrance breakwater structure at the North Rustico Small Craft Harbour has deteriorated to the point whereby reconstruction is required.  The proposed project will see the partial demolition and full encapsulation of breakwater structures #301, #302, and #303 using a combination of steel sheet pile and armour stone.  The new breakwater will be raised approximately 2 metres. Shore protection (structure #603) will also be reconstructed by placing layers of filter and armour stone over the existing timber crib structure.
