Algoma Harbor, WI

Algoma Harbor is a recreational harbor located within Kewaunee County, Wisconsin.  The project depth is 14 feet, 1,102 feet long on the north pier and 1,530 feet long on the south breakwater.  Previous breakwater repair occurred in FY22 and included placing rubble mound along the lakeside of the south breakwater.  Current conditions of the breakwater requiring repair include deterioration, spalling, concrete slab failure, exposed rebar, and large gaps. 



Work activities for repair include completing a new design for the entire breakwater.  The proposed design will consist of new sheetpile and concrete encapsulation.



Preparation of plans and specifications started in May 2022.  Construction contract award is anticipated to occur in March 2023.
