Description: Technical note
General: A walkway constructed on jetties, groins, and breakwater structures provides a low-cost recreational facility for such activities as fishing and walking/sightseeing. Approximately half of all Corps coastal and navigation structures (including rubble-mound and other types of structures) in the United States are presently used by the public for fishing and related recreational activities, according to a study by the U. S. Army Engineer Institute for Water Resources (1984). Most of the coastal structures used by the public have been modified to provide safer or easier access, but only about 20 percent have walkways. These walkways may provide some individuals, especially those without boats, their only opportunity to engage in marine-related recreation in coastal areas where large amounts of shoreline are privately owned.
Rights: Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.
