NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF STATE ANNOUNCES GROUNDBREAKING OF NEW YORK STATE ‘REDI’ PROJECT IN VILLAGE OF CAPE VINCENT, JEFFERSON COUNTY
$103,000 Awarded to the Village to Reconstruct Real Street Seawall; Promote Safety of Residents and Visitors
During the high-water flood events that took place in the summer of 2017 and again in 2019, the Real Street seawall, located directly on the St. Lawrence River, suffered extensive damage. Flooding coupled with intense wave action scoured the wall, leaving the bedding stone displaced, and the wall blocks uneven and unstable. Support materials behind the wall have been washed away by storm action leaving the top of the wall system tilted back into the shoreline. The present condition of the seawall presents a hazard for residents and visitors to the Village. The REDI Commission awarded the village $103,000 to reconstruct and raise the seawall. The wall will be rebuilt using stacked limestone rock and new bedding stone. An apron will be constructed of quarry stone behind the seawall.
“The Village of Cape Vincent took a hard hit during the flooding of 2019, with many of our businesses feeling the repercussions of the damage that was left in it’s wake. With the State’s partnership, and through the REDI program, we are reimagining and rebuilding critical infrastructure within our community. When completed, these projects will ensure that we are better equipped to handle future flooding events. Our shoreline will be able to remain open, allowing visitors to enjoy all that Cape Vincent has to offer. On behalf of the Village I would like to extend our gratitude to Governor Hochul for her continued support throughout this process.”
