Roosevelt Campobello International Park Shore and Bank Protection Project

The project is located in the Roosevelt Campobello International Park at Mulholland Point on the southeastern end of Campobello Island in New Brunswick, Canada. The park, about 120 miles east of Bangor, is separated from Lubec by the Lubec Narrows and is accessible by the Franklin Roosevelt Memorial Bridge.

The Roosevelt Campobello International Park Commission, which was established by an international agreement between the U.S. and Canada, asked the Corps for assistance in providing shoreline protection for an historic lighthouse located along Lubec Narrows at Mulholland Point. The lighthouse was in danger from an eroding shoreline caused by extreme tides and high currents through Lubec Narrows. The resulting project, which consists of 375 feet of stone slope protection around Mulholland Point, was completed in March 1989 with a construction cost of $120,000. The project was authorized and funded by special legislation passed by the U.S. Congress.
