The 8-ft. section of wall waterward of the 2399 Skyline Way building seawall lip has fractured and <br /> fallen into the bay.The remaining lip is to be cut and ground down to prepare for new concrete; holes <br /> are to be drilled for the installation of new support rebar.The new concrete pours are to be the same <br /> shape and dimension as the existing seawall lip;the new concrete would be ensure the <br /> support rebar is adequately covered. <br /> 1.3. The cracks along the western end of the vertical wall are to be cleaned and grinded, as necessary. <br /> Caulk will then be applied in the cracks on approximately 6 ft. of the seawall length. <br /> 1.4.
