North Nashua River (Lancaster) Shore and Bank Protection Project

North Nashua River, Lancaster

The project on the North Nashua River in Lancaster is located adjacent to Lunenburg Road (Route 70). It is about 18 miles north of Worcester.

River flows and ice had significantly eroded an embankment of the North Nashua River, threatening Lunenburg Road. To prevent further erosion and strengthen the roadway, the Corps placed 400 feet of stone slope protection on the riverbank.

This project was built between September-November 1978 at a cost of $82,000. It was constructed under Section 14 of the Corps’ Continuing Authorities Program.
