August 25, 2016 | The first week of the New Pass dredging project resulted in the dredging of approximately 12,226 cubic yards of sand. Norfolk Dredging Company is starting at the southern end of L’Ambiance and working north. Work is progressing and additional shore pipe pieces have been delivered to the beach to progress northward to Regent Place. Dredging operations will be occurring 24/7 to complete this work as quickly as possible. The South End/New Pass beachfill operation is expected to last roughly 4 weeks.
The Town and Norfolk Dredging Company are currently watching the developing tropical weather situation and making a plan for severe weather should it arise.
