Shorefront Park Living Shoreline and Little Creek Restoration

The Living Shoreline and Litte Creek Restoration Project at Shorefront Park has started with completion anticipated by Memorial Day. The project will mitigate flooding by removing the bulkhead replacing it with a "Living Shoreline" composed of boulders, rock and native marshland plantings bordered by a concrete walkway. Little Creek will be re-routed for a more direct path to the bay and the existing vaults will be removed. Included in the project is a kayak launch at the west end of the shoreline at the foot of Mascot Dock. The work is being done by Galvin Bros. Construction Company. Galvin Bros.. The project has been funded by a private donor,  the New York State Department of State and Suffolk County.  Read more about it in Newsday.
