  • The Port of Long Beach has completed permanent repairs to rock dikes at Pier F, J and the Navy Mole that sustained damage from Hurricane Marie in 2014. Long Beach-based Connolly-Pacific Co., a rock quarrying and marine construction company, did the work and also repaired other sections of the Port’s rock dikes needing maintenance due to normal wear and tear. Connolly-Pacific finished the job for $3.7 million, a savings of more than 43 percent of the nearly $6.5 million the Port budgeted for the repairs. Under a separate contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Connolly-Pacific repaired segments of the federal breakwater in 2015 after the hurricane. Connolly-Pacific is the same company that built the breakwater in the 1930s and 1940s.
