District contractor uses a laser screed on Humboldt Jetty
The Humboldt Jetty project consists of repairs to the North and South Jetties that maintain the opening and federal navigation channel that helps keep boaters in the right place as they move into Humboldt Bay. Here recently a District contractor performed concrete cap placement along sections of both the North and South Jetties. They used new technology called a laser screed. The remote-controlled equipment automatically adjusts itself to screed the top of the concrete and achieve the required finished elevation, thus removing any guess work compared to manual screeding. S.E.A. estimates completing the South Jetty this season depending on weather conditions, while the North Jetty is estimated to be completed next year due to additional rock placement that's done before the final concrete cap placement.
