ATM designed, permitted, and monitored the construction of a shoreline stabilization and passive park enhancement project at Twin Rivers Park in Martin County, FL. Using bulkheads, riprap, and vegetation; ATM stabilized 1,000 feet of eroding shoreline adjacent to the St. Lucie inlet and created a protected shallow water habitat (living shoreline). In addition, ATM designed an aluminum sheetpile bulkhead and two concrete/timber pedestrian piers as an upland amenity for the County’s park system.
ATM also provided assistance to the County to obtain FIND grant funding covering a portion of the design and construction costs of the project. The project was completed on time and within budget.
