HHI Construction Operations to Resume Following Hurricane Matthew

Weeks Marine Inc. is about to restart the beach renourishment activities at the Town of Hilton Head Island.

According to the town’s latest beach nourishment update, the contractor expects to restart beach renourishment activities in South Forest Beach no later than October 19, 2016.

The town is aiming to replace the sand washed from the design template along the central oceanfront beach as a result of Hurricane Matthew. While the storm related sand losses from the template are measurable, the majority of the sand recently pumped on the beach remains in place.

We are not “starting over.” Only a fraction of the sand that was originally placed will be re-pumped,” said the town in the release.

The initial active construction zone will be established between Beach Marker 55 and 57A, approximately ½ mile south of the Coligny Beach Park access.

Necessary shore pipe will be pre-deployed in 1000′ piles from South Forest Beach to southern Palmetto Dunes in order to support what is expected to be very quick forward progress until the point is reached where the project ceased prior to Hurricane Matthew. From there, normal construction operations will resume.

In coming days, work is expected to advance to the north adjacent to and then beyond Coligny, North Forest Beach and Shipyard. Work within this segment will proceed as far north as near the Windsor Court South development (adjacent to southern Palmetto Dunes).

A revised construction schedule is forthcoming and will be released when complete.
