When Hurricane Sandy pummeled the east coast in 2012, the storm damaged the utility infrastructure and several buildings at Naval Weapons Station (NWS) Earle in Colts Neck, New Jersey. Most of the damage occurred along NWS Earle’s 2.9-mile-long pier complex, where the Weapons Station carries out its mission to safely deliver ordnance to U.S. Navy warships. A number of temporary repairs have kept NWS Earle functioning since the storm, but permanent repairs and improvements are on the way.
Sundt has begun a $23.9 million federal construction project that will reverse the damage from Sandy while readying the Weapons Station, specifically the pier complex, for the next 100-year storm event. Read more here.
