On July 13, 2016 the NOAA Restoration Center awarded a $1.6M construction contract to Crowder Gulf for installation of the DWH Swift Tract Living Shoreline Project in Bon Secour Bay, Alabama.

Crowder Gulf is expected to mobilize over the next 45 days with construction commencing in September 2016. The Swift Tract Living Shoreline project will reduce shoreline erosion along approximately 1.6 miles of eroding shoreline within the Weeks Bay NERR management area and restore approximately 3 acres of intertidal oyster reef habitat that was once present in the region. This project builds off of an existing 0.5 mile living shoreline project constructed by The Nature Conservancy that was also constructed by Crowder Gulf.
