USA: Corps Invites Bids for Tybee Island Beach Renourishment

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah District, has invited construction or dredging companies to submit their offers for a new beach renourishment at Tybee Island, Georgia, to increase storm damage reduction.

This is the first beach renourishment since 2008 at the coastal Georgia community. The City of Tybee Island and the Corps of Engineers jointly sponsor the project.

The Corps will evaluate and award the contract and will oversee the construction. The federal government will fund approximately 61 percent of the cost while the city will fund approximately 39 percent.

The project will take about four months to complete, beginning in November 2014. As with similar past projects, sections of the beach will be closed to the public while workers operate in those locations. As workers move to another section of beach, the reinforced portions of the beach will reopen.

Corps officials expect to award the contract for the project by September 30, 2014.
