All Set for the Grand Strand Beach Renourishment Project


Next week, a new project will begin to place approximately 1.4 million cubic yards of material on Myrtle, North Myrtle, Garden City and Surfside Beaches.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, recently awarded this $34.8 million contract for the Myrtle Beach Storm Damage Reduction Project to Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company, LLC.

According to the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, works on this project started in August. The nourishment will include approximately eight miles on Myrtle Beach, four miles on Surfside and Garden City Beaches and two miles on North Myrtle Beach. The project will be completed no later than Dec. 15.

This storm damage reduction project goes along with the regularly scheduled plan for this area which is to place sand on the beach every 8 years. Last year, North Myrtle, Garden City and Surfside Beaches received 1.3 million cubic yards of sand using emergency funding made available after impacts from Hurricane Matthew.

The timeline of the construction process:

  • Garden City – Install Sub line and begin mobilization of pipeline – Aug. 1 to Aug. 15;
  • Garden City – Begin Beach Fill from approximately Melody Lane to Myrtle State Park – Aug. 15 to Sept. 8;
  • City of Myrtle Beach – Install Sub line and begin mobilization of pipeline – Aug. 30 to Sept. 11;
  • City of Myrtle Beach – Begin Beach Fill from approximately 29th Ave. South to Grande Dunes Resort – Sept. 12 to Nov. 11;
  • North Myrtle Beach – Install Sub line and begin mobilization of pipeline – Oct. 9 to Oct. 18;
  • North Myrtle Beach – Begin Beach Fill from approximately 17th Ave. South to 11th Ave. North – Nov. 12 to Dec. 8.

The public can track the progress of the beach renourishment project on a Real-Time Map.
