South End Construction 4  

August 18, 2016 | The dredge Pullen has arrived at New Pass and is being readied to start pumping operations sometime in the evening of Thursday, August 18th or early morning Friday, August 19th.  The first few thousand cubic yards of the sand will be used to build a high sandy area for the dredger’s equipment to stage and be prepared to begin sand-spreading operations. 

Sand placement will start at the southern end of the L’Ambiance Condominium and move northward as the beach is widened. The dredge will be working 24 hours a day, seven days a week as the beach-building process continues to the northern end of Regent Place.

Beach walkers are cautioned to stay clear of the designated construction zones which will be clearly marked with “beach closed” signs. Specifically stay clear of the sand discharge pipeline point and/or any beach machinery or equipment in the construction area. Depending on weather and other factors this work will last approximately 30 days.

The estimated volume of sand that will be dredged from New Pass and placed on the southern construction area is about 200,000 cubic yards.
