FOLLOWUP: Emma Schmitz Memorial Overlook seawall progress photos

If you’ve driven, walked, rode, or run past Emma Schmitz Memorial Overlook (4503 Beach Drive SW) in the past few weeks, you’ve seen the seawall work – but not from the beach side. Today, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Seattle Parks shared progress photos.

The new $3 million seawall is being built in front of the failing old one.

Building the 465-foot-long seawall will last about half a year, project leaders said at the pre-construction meeting we covered in June.

    The Army Corp redid Seahurst here in Burien. It was such a torture to wait for all that needed to be done to be finished, it was a huge project, but when it was done it was wonderful and now an even greater place to walk and visit. I am a big fan of the work the Corp does.

    Too bad nobody ever gives the Contractor any credit for actually doing the hard work it takes to build something difficult like that.Credit always seems to go to the Engineers & Owners (with no mention of the hard working men and women who often put their lives on the line to build the job).  Everyone should be celebrated for such an amazing accomplishment…
