Reconstruction of breakwater structure 301 and wharf structure 406 at the Miller Brook Fisheries and Oceans Canada Small Craft Harbour, Gloucester County, New Brunswick

The proposed project at the Miller Brook (Salmon Beach) small craft harbour consists of the reconstruction of the deteriorated breakwater structure (structure 301) located on the east side of the entrance channel. Construction activities will consist of removal of the timber cribwork structure and installation of a rubble mound breakwater. Rock from the existing breakwater will be incorporated into the new structure. The project will also include the reconstruction of the marginal wharf 406 within the same footprint.
