Description

Excerpt from Cape Cod Canal: Letter From the Secretary of War, Transmitting Report of Proceedings to Date in Determining Value and Advisability of Purchase of the Cape Cod Canal, Connecting Buzzards Bay and Cape Cod Bay, Mass The cost of a guard lock, should one be required, is roughly esti mated in the report on survey at about and no detailed estimates of cost can be given in the absence of a decision as to the precise requirements to be met. The division engineer is of opinion that rather than to build a lock in the canal it would be better to suspend navigation in times of greatest velocities. The cost of a detached breakwater in Cape Cod Bay, also of doubtful necessity, is estimated at about to depending upon its length and the depth of water in which it is located. The least length of breakwater tentatively suggested is 1 mile, and estimates are given ranging from for a structure of this length to for one feet in length.
