The Town of Hilton Head Island has just announced changes to the schedule of the upcoming beach renourishment project.
Sand placement activities will commence June 15, 2016 along the Port Royal Sound Shoreline portion of the project.
Once complete, work is expected to move from Port Royal Sound to South Beach, east of the Tower Beach Club in very late July.
The central oceanfront segment will be constructed last, mostly during the months of September and October. Mobilization activities including delivery of pipeline and equipment will continue to occur for the next several weeks.
The scope and scale of the project remains unchanged with the placement of:
- approx 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;
- approx 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;
- approx 0.3 million cubic yards of sand along 5,000 feet of Atlantic shorefront in southern Sea Pines near South Beach; and
- 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.
