Western New York architectural and utility precast operator Lakelands Concrete has begun shipping 950 16-ton structures for the Corps of Engineers’ Oswego Harbor Detached Breakwater project along Lake Ontario’s southern shore. The individual structures are known as dolos, derived from South African and Latin terms meaning knuckle bone; through weight and geometry, dolosse (plural) quell shoreline erosion from waves and undercurrent.
