The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District awarded a $15,577,450.00 contract to the Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company for the next scheduled maintenance dredging of U.S. Naval Station Kings Bay Entrance Channel and sand placement at Fernandina Beach.

The project includes maintenance dredging of the entrance channel and parts of the inner channel, returning the project to its authorized depths.

It also includes escarpment removal at Fort Clinch State Park and beneficial placement of beach compatible sand on the northern portion of Fernandina Beach in Nassau County.

The awarded beach placement area starts near Fort Clinch State Park’s coastal boundary near Kimberly Street and will go as far south as near Dolphin Avenue.

The Corps estimates the contractor will place about 300,000 cubic yards at Fernandina Beach.

The contractor will disperse about 900,000 cubic yards of non-beach compatible sand between the approved nearshore disposal area and an offshore disposal site.

Construction is expected to begin in December and will last for approximately three months.

Dredging will end before March 31, which is the end of the environmental turtle window allowing hopper dredging.
