The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the city of Virginia Beach announced the initiation of the Lynnhaven Inlet Jetties Study on July 2.
They are now inviting the public to attend a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) scoping meeting, scheduled for July 22, 6-8 p.m., at the Frank W. Cox High School auditorium lobby, Virginia Beach, Virginia.
The meeting will provide the public an opportunity to learn more about the study and provide comments on the project.
The USACE plans to prepare an Environmental Assessment to evaluate options and potential impacts to address the shoaling that occurs in the authorized federal navigation channel at and north of the Lynnhaven Inlet in Virginia Beach.
This assessment will include the potential construction of jetties on either side of the Lynnhaven Inlet and other reasonable alternatives.
