Beach Nourishment Update- June 8, 2017

Weather conditions continue to put a hold on dredging. In looking at the forecast, GLDD anticipates bringing the dredges back either late tonight or early tomorrow morning to resume work. The Dodge and Padre Island construction zone in the northern section has shifted south to approximately between 129 Acorn Ave. and 125 Sea Tern Dr. Currently, beach access in this zone is closed. The Liberty Island construction zone has also been extended slightly south from approximately 161 Bufflehead Rd. to 119 Spindrift Ln. The demobilized beach equipment is fenced off awaiting the dredge return. Beach accesses are currently open at this location and a walkway is available behind the equipment.

Please continue to keep in mind that all schedules are subject to change.
