Dredging Closes Sandy Beach

Sandy Beach and its parking lot will be closed to all pedestrian and vehicle traffic until February 1, 2016, due to the Cohasset Harbor dredging project, according to the Town of Cohasset.

The city also said that the Parker Avenue Boat Ramp will be closed starting October 1, 2015 until project completion.

The contract, awarded on July 13, 2015, will be accomplished by H2H Associates LLC, of Troy, N.Y.

“Work consists of maintenance dredging of approximately 62,000 cubic yards of predominantly sandy sediment, by hydraulic dredge from the Cohasset Harbor 8-foot navigation channel, 7-foot deep anchorage and one of three 6-foot deep anchorages,” said Project Manager Craig Martin of the Corps of Engineers, New England District, Programs and Project Management Division in Concord, Mass.

The navigation channel is 90 feet wide, about 0.7 miles in length, and extends from Cape Cod Bay into Cohasset Harbor. The 7-foot anchorage requiring maintenance dredging is approximately 18 acres in size, while the 6-foot anchorage is approximately 5 acres.
