Title: The Troy Seawall Stabilization and Mitigation Project
Description: Repairing a seawall in a tidal river environment along New York’s Hudson River required ingenuity and innovative solutions. Due to its age and damage from Hurricane Irene, rehabilitating The City of Troy, NY’s 95-year old concrete seawall became urgent. Rehabilitation presented many significant challenges including performing most of the construction from barges. The team repaired the face of the wall, constructed a new precast concrete panel system supported by steel piles and tiebacks to strengthen the wall, and increased the height of the wall to offer improved protection to the business district. The finished project also includes a new marina and sidewalks along the riverfront to welcome pedestrians.
