Project Description

The St. Andrews Bluff Protection and Beach Access project consists of the construction of a tied-back shotcrete seawall to stabilize the face of the coastal bluff to protect the sewer lift station. The wall will be approximately 80 foot long and 26 to 28 feet tall, and will incorporate a beach access stairway and a storm drain pipe at the north end of the wall. The project will also include repair and rehabilitation of the existing lower seawall, with a new structural shotcrete face keyed into the underlying bedrock shore platform. The project's total cost is $4,224,150 and is being funded by the US Army Corps of Engineers, State of California Division of Boating and Waterways and the City of Pismo Beach.
