Fort Smallwood Park Shoreline Protection

Project description

Taking action to mitigate the effects of climate change is an ongoing challenge in the Chesapeake Watershed. The Fort Smallwood Park Shoreline Protection project highlights best design and construction practices, as well as how quality workmanship addresses these challenges.

DFI provided Construction Management and Inspection (CM&I) services for the third phase of this environmental project, located in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. The project included numerous Storm Water Management (SWM) best practices to help aid in environmental sustainability, while allowing the public to enjoy the gorgeous views and what park the has to offer. The fishing piers improve environmental quality by providing access to recreation and beautiful views.

The project included 1,630 linear feet of stone revetment/armor stone to reduce wave energy, 12,000 pounds of stone, the installation of three (3) timber piles and the construction of 20 feet x 24 feet fishing boardwalks/piers. Additional work included the planting of 180 native trees and 85 shrubs, the utilization of turbidity curtains and other Erosion and Sediment Controls (E&SC) and in-water work calendar restrictions. Strategies incorporated included replacement of the existing revetment, shoreline replenishment, the addition of three (3) fishing piers, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) access and tailored landscaping.

Coordination with the Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks and public relations community meetings were also paramount to ensuring this project was completed successfully.
