Maintaining the past
The sailors of the USACE Buffalo District Floating Plant began working on repairs to the Bird Island Pier in Buffalo, NY, on Oct. 5, 2012. The work is being done as a regular operations and maintenance repair of the structure, using funds contributed by the City of Buffalo from a grant provided by the Niagara River Greenway Commission for that purpose. The repair work will shore damage to the top of the structure which supports the recreational walkway. The walkway has been closed south of the Peace Bridge since August 2010, and the planned repair work is expected to allow a portion of it to be reopened for public use in 2013.
