North Beach Seawall Work to Begin in March

The contract total to hydro-blast the failed concrete and form and pour new concrete is $3,192,140 for the project area from the 13th street entrance to High Street. This final phase of work will take place over 16 months. Mobilization will begin on Monday March 3, 2014 and work will suspend in mid-June, resuming early September and continuing until mid-November 2014. The last portion around the bathhouse will resume in March 2015 and all work is expected to be complete in early June 2015.

“This construction will complete the seawall project that has been ongoing since 2006,” stated Phil Bryce director of NH Division of Parks and Recreation. “We appreciate the efforts of Senator Stiles and the support of the house and senate capital committees to be able to finalize this seawall project.”

This portion of the seawall was originally constructed in 1933, and has required continuous repairs due to the structural failure and deterioration of the concrete surfaces resulting from weather and storm wave action.
