The news and entertainment website, Gothamist, first reported that the Army Corps of Engineers has proposed building twelve storm surge gates at various bays and inlets around New York at a cost of $52 billion with construction to start in 2030. Public comment period and meetings will start in 2023. One of the largest gates is proposed for Jamaica Bay, near the Marine Park Bridge. Putting aside the merits of the plan that would protect the metropolitan area from storm surges and coastal flooding, we’re ready to bet the ranch, construction for such a massive project won’t happen by 2030. Everybody agreed we needed jetties here and that work took eight years to start. This new proposal won’t have unanimous agreement and is vastly larger than a jetty project. We figure add 10 years and several more billion bucks.
