Cherry Grove Dredging Project Update

The two dredges to be used in the Cherry Grove Dredging Project should arrive in North Myrtle Beach later today, reports the City of North Myrtle Beach.

As a precautionary measure, the South Carolina Department of Transportation had stopped the trucks carrying the dredges at the South Carolina/Georgia border.

The trucks were stopped in order to first ensure that roads and bridges could handle the load following the flooding that impacted state roadways in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.

According to the city latest report, the trucks were released for transport today.

The contractor for the project, Orion Marine has already assembled around 16,000 feet of pipeline that will be used to transport dredged material to the spoils basin.

A large crane will be used to launch the dredges and the small barges that will carry booster pumps that will be placed at along the pipeline.
