Wharf Reconstruction, Westport, NL

DFO, Small Craft Harbour is proposing to reconstruct the marginal wharf in Westport. The existing treated timber cribwork wharf is scribed to hard bottom and protected on the seaward side by armour stone along it full length.  Near the end of the wharf, the wharf turns >90 degrees to the inner harbour and continues for another 12m to form an L-shaped structure. The new wharf will be constructed in a similar footprint along the approach. The stem section will be extended by one (1) crib seaward.  The new wharf will then turn approximately 45 degrees towards the inner harbour and continue for an additional 12.2 m creating a dog-leg shaped wharf on a new footprint.  Armour stone protection will remain in a similar position to existing.  A jib crane and new electrical system will complement the new structure.  A new electrical shed will provide electrical service to the electrical system, located in the uplands near the wharf stem.
