Preparations Underway for Hilton Head Island Beachfill

The Hilton Head Island’s contractor, Weeks Marine, Inc. will continue with pre-construction activities associated with the upcoming beachfill project which is expected to start by March 15, 2016.

Rafts of submerged pipeline will be delivered to local waters in upcoming days, the Town of Hilton Head Island stated in its latest announcement.

These sections of pipeline will be submerged and stored temporarily on both sides of Calibogue Sound.

The planned 2016 renourishment project will include four principal parts:

  • Placement of about 1.3 million cubic yards of sand along 5.5 miles of Atlantic Ocean shorefront from just South of Coligny Circle to The Folly tidal inlet at Singleton Beach;
  • Placement of about 0.5 million cubic yards of sand along 7,000 feet of the Atlantic Ocean and Port Royal Sound shorelines in northern Port Royal Plantation;
  • Placement of about 0.3 million cubic yards of sand along 5,000 feet of Atlantic Shorefront in southern Sea Pines near South Beach;
  • Placement of up to 60,000 cubic yards of sand along 2,400 feet of the Port Royal Sound shoreline north of Fish Haul Creek in the vicinity of the Fish Haul Park, Mitchelville Beach Park and The Spa of Port Royal.

As with previous projects, the nourishment sand will be excavated by hydraulic dredge from two offshore shoal features.
