South Island Beach Fill Project About to Begin
Town of Hilton Head Island has just announced that the contractor, Marinex Construction, is about to begin mobilization activities associated with South Island Emergency Beach Fill Project.
According to the town, Marinex will begin mobilization activities on August 15, 2017.
Marinex is planning for a water based mobilization with equipment and pipeline both being barged in. A barge landing is expected to occur at South Beach.
The contractor expects to place the submerged pipeline landing in the vicinity of Beach Marker 19 (near Green Winged Teal Street) starting on August 15.
The submerged pipeline between the beach landing and the Barrett Shoal borrow site will be installed prior to the dredge coming on station.
Once all pipeline and the dredge is in place, beach work will be accomplished in 2 segments. The first occurring from the submerged pipeline landing to the southern terminus of the project near Beach Marker 12 (Brown Pelican Street) and the second segment from the submerged pipeline landing to Beach Marker 34 (East Beach Lagoon Drive).
Segment 1 work is expected to occur in late August/early September followed by Segment 2 work which is expected to occur between early September and early October.
