During that week, additional equipment and dredge pipe will be delivered, followed by dredge vessels.

Approximately 225,000 to 250,000 cubic yards of clean sand is available to be deposited on City beaches.

“Due to the weather related events that can delay the completion of the Harbor dredge, no end date has been determined,” the City said.

“However, the Army Corps confirmed the dredge will be completed no later than Memorial Day weekend.”
