Bedford Institute of Oceanography (BIO) Jetty Wharf Replacement and Infill Service Area.

Existing timber crib jetty wharf and ‘L' , along with floating docks, will be removed and replaced.  The proposed new jetty and ‘L' will be larger then the existing and will be of concrete caisson construction.  New floats will also be installed.  Dredging will be required to remove existing structures, obtain required depth, and for placement of new structures.  Project will also involve the construction of a rock berm infill area adjacent to the shore to contain dredge material and to be used as a new service area.
