Although Covid-19 is dominating the news, we reached out to Dan Falt of the Army Corps of Engineers who told us the installation of new jetties and other resiliency measures are still on schedule. There might be “some delays from the pandemic but it’s moving forward as fast as possible.”
The New York District of the Army Corps will be building Alternative Care Facilities over the next few weeks. But even with this, Falt said they expect to open bids in mid-April and award a contract for jetty/groins installation soon after.
