In the Field : Jamestown, a Reef from Ruins

The ‘Old Jamestown Bridge’ spanning nearly 7000 feet across Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island was demolished during a controlled demolition in 2006. Debris from this project was strategically placed offshore to create two new reef habitats. A field team including researchers from the University of Rhode Island, the RI Department of Environmental Management, the RI Department of Transportation, divers from Conusub, and Ocean Opportunity have been monitoring early succession of marine life. This project is a marquis demonstration of the successful creation of new habitat to support marine life; both invertebrate, and fish species of commercial interest.
