Tybee Island Beach Renourishment VIDEO

Burt Moore, chief of dredging, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District, discussed recent beach renourishment project on Tybee Island’s North Beach.

The $4.3 million project, which lasted about two weeks, placed approximately 250,000 cubic yards of sand.

Tybee Island’s beaches are normally renourished every seven years, however, this project was designed to counter the erosion caused by Hurricanes Matthew and Irma in 2016-17.

The contract for the Tybee Island Beach Renourishment project was awarded to Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company, which with the help of cutter suction dredge Carolina performed the task.
