According to the Corps, the project includes placing of 1.2 million cubic yards of sand, widening the beach to 60 feet and creating a berm 5 feet above mean low water along 7.3 miles of shoreline.

Once completed, the wider, higher beach will protect infrastructure, from the tip of Willoughby Spit near the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel to the federal navigation project at Little Creek Inlet, from wave attack and flooding during coastal storms.

The project, worth $34.5 million, is the largest single storm damage reduction project in the City of Norfolk.
