Nov 27, 2018 1:52 pm Modified: May 15, 2019 12:37 pmTrack Changes This is only a Presolicitation Notice: Athol Springs - Shoreline Storm Damage Reduction and Shore Protection, Hamburg, NY This is NOT a request for proposal or invitation for bid; this is for INFORMATIONAL purposes only to make industry aware of the upcoming requirement.

A response is not required at this time.

Questions will not be answered until official solicitation is issued.

The USACE Buffalo District is currently preparing a solicitation to award a contract for a project at the southeast end of Lake Erie to provide protective measures for New York State Route 5 in the Hamlet of Athol Springs of Hamburg, New York.

The town of Hamburg is located in central western Erie County, approximately ten miles south of the city of Buffalo.

A 15-foot high concrete retaining wall at the shore of Lake Erie protects New York State Route 5.

Several buildings are located within the reach.

The area experiences heavy wave run-up and overtopping during storm events resulting in road closures and damages to area buildings.

The storm events send large quantities of water and debris onto the road surface which create safety hazards for motorists and pedestrians.

Water passing over the seawall has eroded fill material behind the seawall and damaged the road.

Measures have been selected to resolve the erosion and damage problems.

An approximate 1,300 linear foot long stone revetment (at NYS Route 5 and Big Tree Road) with a concrete splash apron will be constructed to provide stability to the wall and significantly reduce wave run-up is being planned.

Repairs to the existing 860 linear foot seawall are also being considered.

The rubble mound revetment is a sloping face of large stone which functions by dissipating incoming wave energy in contrast to reflecting this energy as presently occurs when the waves hit the vertical seawall.

The rubble mound revetment will provide stability to the existing concrete seawall, significantly reducing or stopping the excessive wave run-up and overtopping of the existing seawall during storm events, and avoid the future costs of a major rehabilitation of the existing seawall.

The North American Industrial Classification System Code (NAICS) for this effort is 237990 - Other Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction.
