RIALTO SPIT REVETMENT REPAIR
Date: January–February 2019GET A QUOTE
The Rialto Spit Revetment Repair project is a 10-year-long effort. The revetment absorbs waves and debris from the Pacific Ocean, protecting the village of La Push, including the Quileute Harbor Marina, a U.S. Coast Guard station, and many local homes and businesses. Parts of the revetment on the Rialto Spit have been washed away over time. This portion of the project repaired a 200-foot section of the revetment.
4,700 Tons of Armor Rock and Core Rock
Washington Rock Quarries worked with Trade West Construction to produce a higher yield of armor rock-sized boulders. The project required approximately 300 pieces of armor rock. Despite being 200 miles from the project location, Washington Rock was chosen as the supplier for the project because our materials met the tough specifications for armor rock set by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
