The project began on September 9, 2009 and included three major components: shoreline stabilization; stormwater management and parking improvements; and exotic vegetation removal and landscaping of the upland area. This environmental and roadway protection project is the first of its kind undertaken by PWD. The total cost for this project was $6.8 million."
