As a result of Winter Storm Riley in March 2018, the City of Quincy suffered severe damage to its coastal infrastructure, including seawalls, outfalls, and tide gates. The nor’ easter included periods of heavy rains, damaging winds and coastal flooding over three high tide cycles, as well as storm surges.
Tighe & Bond’s team mobilized within hours to evaluate the damage and prioritize over $2 million worth of repairs within 60 days. Working with local, state, and federal agencies, Tighe & Bond worked to assess the damage and provide design, permitting, and construction phase services for repairs to seawalls, revetments, outfalls, and exposed sewer pipes at 14 locations throughout the City.
The work required careful coordination and an extremely aggressive schedule for providing evaluations as well as drawings and details for the construction of repairs. Many of the work areas were difficult to access with typical equipment. Tighe & Bond used a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, environmental scientists, GIS analysts, and project managers to complete the work between March and May 2018.
