The Cherry Grove Dredging Project is finally underway with the contractor, Orion Marine working near the ‘G Canal’, located between 44th and 45th Avenues North.
According to the City of North Myrtle Beach, last week one dredge worked in the ‘E Canal’ and another was several blocks down in the Minor Channel.
The dredged material is flowing through a pipeline that winds along the southern edge of the marsh, on to land, under Little River Road, and ultimately winds up in a huge spoils basin where it will dewater over time and then be moved to a final resting place.
The current plan calls for dredging from 7am-7pm daily, but this could change if circumstances develop that require a longer working schedule.
The project schedule anticipates construction will take place from November 2016 through April 2017.
