POST-HURRICANE REPAIRS

TPC River Highlands 13th Hole Washout Repair

In September 2021 the 13th hole of the TPC River Highlands was washed out when Hurricane Ida hit Connecticut. Declaring the stabilization and repair of the area an emergency in need of immediate action, CTDOT hired O&G Industries to orchestrate and execute the work, with a tight timeline for completion in May 2022.

The storm collapsed thousands of tons of rock, soil, and sand, carving out a giant bowl some 70 feet high and 250 feet across. The damage left an active train track dangling in mid-air above the washout, alongside a now-exposed pipeline that supplies jet fuel from New Haven Harbor to Bradley International Airport.
