The contractor, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock started the work in early July by deploying the cutter suction dredge TEXAS to the project site.

After about a month and a half of work, GLDD has placed approx. 580,112 cubic yards of dredged sand onto the beach (79.06% complete).

“Currently, the dredge TEXAS remains in Cape May Inlet for repairs. The Booster is onsite waiting for repairs to the dredge to be completed.” the city said in the update.

GLDD estimates the repairs and tow back to the borrow area is expected as early as Thursday and no later than Saturday.
