Smith Island Shoreline Restoration and Celebration and Rhodes Point Jetty -- March 30th, 2019
Today I visited Smith Island along with Senator Van Hollen and other Maryland dignitaries. We celebrated shoreline restoration and the Rhodes Point jetty - projects that were a collaboration of the Army Corps and state and federal agency partners. This project addressed jetty and shoreline restoration, navigation improvements, and habitat restoration. It was also an honor to be at the presentation of the 103rd Admiral of the Chesapeake Bay award to Captain Eddie Sommers, the leader of Smith Island United.
