The City of North Myrtle Beach’s dune restoration project is nearing its completion, local media reports.

The $616,000 project with A.O. Hardee & Son as the contractor is using around 60,000 cubic yards of sand to restore sand dunes from 45th Avenue South to 48th Avenue South and from 42nd Avenue North to 55th Avenue North.

Dunes in these areas were severely eroded or destroyed by Hurricane Matthew, leaving oceanfront structures exposed to potentially damaging storm surge.

Sand used in the project comes from a dredging spoils basin located on Little River Neck Road.

According to local media, some residents are surprised by the project, saying the dune berms are much bigger than expected.

Commenting this, North Myrtle Beach spokesperson, Pat Dolwing, said that the dunes are being restored to the same size they had when the 2007 federal beach renourishment project was finished.

It is expected that this coastal protection project will finish up on March 1.
