Army Corps Completes Fort Norfolk Project
November 19, 2009

Fort Norfolk Handrail and Sidewalk Repair Project (U.S. Army photo: Josh Williams)

According to information available from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, the Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) project to install a safety handrail and perform repairs to the western waterfront sidewalk of historic Fort Norfolk was completed ahead of schedule and within budget.

Installed in 1983, several portions of the exterior edge of the concrete sidewalk had eroded from a combination of normal wave energy action and saltwater exposure. There is an approximately seven-foot vertical drop from the edge of the western sidewalk to rocks and water below. The sidewalk was repaired and a handrail was installed for safety, which also gained state archaeological approval with help of the Commonwealth’s Department of Historic Preservation.
