Lightweight Aggregate Provides Performance and Design Flexibility for Breakwater

A 1,440 foot-long floating concrete breakwater was constructed in the state of Washington using lightweight aggregate produced at Boulder, Colorado. The $8 million breakwater project was designed for the Port of Bremerton Marina to attenuate wind driven waves and ferry wakes. Additionally, it was designed to upgrade the marina’s boat capacity, and enlarge the waterfront public space extending from an upland public park area.
