Beach Nourishment Update!

This is the latest update from Jim White, Coastal Section Sr. Project Manager for the City of Virginia Beach: “GLDD is continuing to progress towards the east. Both the Padre Island and the Dodge Island hopper dredge plants are on-site. Using the two dredges allows for a beach building production of approximately 500ft. per day. This is more than double when using only one hopper dredge. GLDD currently intends to be completed by June 30th, 2022 (weather, equipment, other unforeseen conditions dependent).”
