The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to complete its $1 million Stonington Harbor east breakwater repair project next Thursday. Corps Project Manager Michael Walsh said Friday the work, which involved the addition of 6 million pounds of stone to the damaged breakwater, would return it to the condition that it was in before Tropical Storm Irene. "It's in pretty good shape now," he said of the 2,300 feet of breakwater that has been repaired. The 2,900-foot-long breakwater, which protects the harbor from waves, was constructed in 1880 and was last repaired in 1958.

A crew with contractor Blakeslee Arpaia Chapman set new 3-5 ton stones into gaps in the Stonington breakwater Tuesday, March 5, 2013. The approximately $1-million Army Corpse of Engineers project is adding over 3,000 tons of new stone to the breakwater after it was damaged during hurricanes Irene and Sandy. The 2,900-foot-long breakwater, which protects the harbor from waves, was constructed in 1880 and was last repaired in 1958.
