About the Project

This project aims to repair the north and south jetties at the entrance to Humboldt Harbor and Bay. Repairs will be made to approximately 15,400 linear feet of storm-damaged jetty returning the damaged sections to original design conditions. The jetties were first authorized in 1881 and constructed in 1899. The North Jetty (rubble-mound structure with concrete cap) is approximately 7,400 feet, and the South Jetty is approximately 8,000 feet long.
