Town Neck Beach Renourishment Underway

The Town of Sandwich, Mass, will close the Town Neck Beach today for the renourishment project. 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, will take sand from the Cape Cod Canal dredging project and transfer it to the 2,500-foot-long eroded section of Town Neck Beach in Sandwich. It will take about 2–3 months to complete the project.

Work will be conducted twenty-four hours and day, seven days a week until the project is completed, according to the town.

The beaches in the Town of Sandwich, including Town Neck Beach and Springhill Beach, have a history of erosion over the last century.

Construction of jetties at the east end of the Cape Cod Canal in the early 1900s has been one of the primary reasons for this coastal erosion.

The two canal jetties cause an interruption in the natural longshore sediment transport from northwest to southeast, starving Sandwich Town beaches.
