Myrtle Beach Sand Placement Contract for GLDD

The Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Corporation (GLDD) yesterday confirmed the receipt of a $26 million award for the Myrtle Beach Storm Damage Reduction Project. 

The scope of work includes placement of approximately 1.2 million cubic yards of material at North Myrtle Beach, Garden City and Surfside Beaches in South Carolina.

Dave Simonelli, President of Great Lakes’ Dredging segment, said: “Our hopper dredges have supplied sand for Myrtle Beach’s coastal protection needs several times in the past. We look forward to working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Charleston District to create wider beaches which help protect the area’s infrastructure while providing recreational benefits.”

The project is funded through federal emergency beach rehabilitation from Hurricane Matthew along with cost shared construction funding appropriated through the U.S. Congress.

Work is expected to begin in July of this year and last six months.
