This was a protection project along an exposed shoreline boundary of an existing operating container port in Freeport, Bahamas. The project alignment was approximately 390m long and involved the excavation and rehabilitation of the shoreline slope. Components of the rehabilitation were core material utilizing locally sourced material and underlaying and coverlayer armor stone utilizing imported rock that meets project specification. The underlaying stone is approximately 700mm thick and the coverlayer armor stone is approximately 2,100mm thick. The toe of the shoreline protection is at approximately EL-5.2m and crest is at approximately +2.5m. Beyond the crest of the shoreline protection there is a continuous concrete curb installed along with newly fabricated crash barrier and fence components. In addition, new asphalt paving was required to match the existing pavement with the newly constructed concrete curb.
