The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Galveston District has just released this beautiful photo from the Babe’s Beach nourishment project in Galveston, TX, adding that the beach fill work is currently underway near 61st street.

This project, conducted by Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company (GLDD), will place up to 711,000 cubic yards of beach quality sand along the island’s seawall, beginning at 61st and moving west toward 83rd Street.

The scheme – officially kicked off last week – is a collaborative effort sponsored by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston Park Board, City of Galveston and the Texas General Land Office (GLO).

The project will take approximately 60 days to complete and during construction, public access to west seawall beaches beginning at 61st moving west toward 83rd Street will be limited.
