Emergency Repairs to Gulf Coast Jetties and the Texas City Dike | Texas Gulf Coast
Client: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District
Huitt-Zollars teamed with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to conduct aerial reconnaissance of nine jetties and the Texas City Dike. The compilation of reconnaissance information was used to: establish survey control, obtain quality assurance cross-sections, ascertain data obtained from aerial LIDAR and hydrographic surveys, prepare 35% design plans and specifications for the repair of damaged areas, and also prepare a Request for Proposal (RFP) used in the procurement of a MATOC Design-Build Contractor for the design and reconstruction of the jetties and the dike.
