This past Tuesday Governor Cuomo announced a plan to build a $151 seawall to protect the southern coast of Staten Island from severe flooding. It will also include an elevated promenade, wetland habitats, biking& walking paths, and easy access to beaches. The final design for the 7 mile seawall, stretching from Fort Wadsworth to Oakwood, is to be completed by the winter of 2018 after a series of community forums. Construction is slated to begin in 2019 and conclude in 2022.
This announcement follows an open letter to the Army Corp of Engineers, signed by U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer, Congressman Dan Donovan, Mayor Bill de Blasio, Borough President James S. Oddo, and Minority Leader Steven Matteo stressing the importance to Staten Island residents that the new seawall attain FEMA accreditation.
