Cianbro Construction to begin work on $112.76 million Tidal Basin seawall repairs

Washington Construction News staff writer

The National Park Service (NPS) says a $112.76 million rehabilitation project is on track to start before summer to repair the aging Tidal Basin seawall.

The NPS awarded the contract to Cianbro Construction of Pittsville, Maine in August, 2023.

“We expect construction to begin later this spring,” NPS spokesman Mike Litterst recently told broadcaster WJLA-TV (ABC 7). “From between the Thomas Jefferson Memorial and the Franklin Delano Roosevelt memorial, and then along the Potomac River from 23rd St. down to the Inlet Bridge.”

“Repairing the seawalls has been a top priority of the National Park Service for years,” National Mall and Memorial Parks Superintendent Jeff Reinbold said when the project was announced last summer.

“The Great American Outdoors Act funding not only allows us to protect our nation’s treasures from the immediate threats of failing infrastructure and rising sea levels but also will ensure these special places are protected for generations to come.”
