​Multimodal port funds were used to replace a dock wall at the Port of Erie, restoring safety and functionality at the site.

Prior to the reconstruction, the nearby sidewalk and parking lot were often submerged due to failing sea walls and rising water levels. Flooding at the West Dobbins Landing is pictured below.


The East Dobbins Landing project in Erie PA constructed a new sheet pile dock wall which accommodated the higher levels of water and was fifteen feet in front of the deteriorating dock wall. The completed dock wall is pictured below.


This project, costing $2,259,757, created new land which was dedicated as a public access bicycle/pedestrian walkway in perpetuity.

The East Dobbins Landing project took roughly 8 months to construct, with substantial project completion on November 6, 2020.
