AUGUST 19, 2016 | At 9:15 PM yesterday, August 18th, the first flow of sand onto our beaches started at the southern end of the L’Ambiance Condominium property.
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.
