2022 Hurricane Dorian Beach Restoration Project
A beach restoration project in the summer of 2022 will replace sand lost during 2019's Hurricane Dorian.
As of March 4, 2022, construction is tentatively scheduled to take place from about August 1 through about August 30, 2022.
Equipment mobilization is expected to begin in mid-July, with de-mobilization expected to take place in September.
Remember, it is likely the schedule will change over the course of the project.

These projects are not linear in nature and due to the size of our project, we may have more than one beach closure area.
Sand is pumped ashore from an offshore dredge via a submerged pipeline. Construction typically proceeds in one direction from the submerged pipe (also known as a landing point) for a few thousand feet and then will proceed in the other direction from the same landing point.
When all work related to a particular landing point and pipeline length is complete, the contractor will temporarily stop pumping sand and relocate the submerged pipeline to a new landing point. Work will then begin all over again.
Once the project begins, the construction schedule map, below, will be updated daily with the latest beach closures.
