Piling on near Stonington

A crew with contractor Blakeslee Arpaia Chapman set new 3- to 5-ton stones into gaps in the Stonington breakwater. The approximately    $1 million project is adding over 3,000 tons of new stone to the breakwater after it was damaged during hurricanes Irene and Sandy. The 2,900-foot-long breakwater, which protects the harbor from waves, was constructed in 1880 and was last repaired in 1958.
