Virginia Beach Renourishment Resumes This Week

While the Virginia Beach oceanfront renourishment operations will not restart before November 15, submerged pipeline is in place and heavy equipment is stationed, the Norfolk District of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said in their latest project update. 

The project, which began in late June, renourished 75% of the oceanfront in approximately two months.

The contractor, Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company (GLDD), halted operations on September 1 for a sea turtle migration time-of-year restriction imposed by the district.

Virginia Beach’s hurricane and storm-damage reduction system was originally completed in 2001, and this is the second beach-replenishment contract since initial construction. The first occurred in 2012, when crews placed 1.25 million cubic yards of sand on the beach.

This project consists of beach-berm renourishment along the Virginia Beach oceanfront to provide a minimum elevation of 9 feet above sea level and minimum crest width of 100 feet.
