2023-06-125 CITY OF EAST PROVIDENCE -- Repair and add protection to the existing eroded bluff located at 0 Booth Avenue. Work includes installing geotextile reinforced mechanically stabilized earth slope (MSE) with slope dimensions of 2:1 (horizontal to vertical). The MSE slope will present a natural slope (i.e. no manmade structure will be visible). The design allows for implementing native vegetation combined with coir logs, jute mat reinforcement, which will satisfy slope stability requirements. This will restore the toe of the slope to its approximate historic position and will provide the desired protection for Booth Avenue and its utilities.

A riprap sill (a constructed marsh with an artificial sill to reduce potential future erosion) will be installed to provide erosion protection and additional habitat for marine fauna. Other features include an infiltrating Best Management Practice (BMP) for stormwater management and the installation of a “pocket” park.

Located at plat 13, lot 9; Booth Avenue, East Providence, RI.
