LONG BEACH, Calif. — Residents of Naples, the compact island in Alamitos Bay, are prepping for the initial phase of repair to the dilapidated seawalls neighboring the area.
Scheduled to begin in August, according to Seawall Committee Chair Maureen Poe, the first phase of a reported six phase project will cost about $9.9 million. Improvements will include the maintenance of 1,000 linear feet of seawall located on the Rivo Alto Canal between the Ravenna and The Toledo bridges.
