BEACHFILL UPDATE, APRIL 5TH:
The start of dredging was reported by the Contractor, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock (GLDD), to be delayed until April 15 in Avalon. The Cutter Suction Dredge “Texas” remains currently docked in New York receiving predictive and preventative maintenance. It is expected to leave New York by April 12.
The impact on the start date to Stone Harbor filling operations is not yet fully known, but a three day delay is likely, which would mean the start of beach filling in Stone Harbor is likely on May 12. However, the Contractor has not yet confirmed the impact to the schedule on this latest delay.
You can expect to see some activity in the next few weeks in Stone Harbor as the Contractor begins to install sublines which are the pipes that carry the sand from the dredge to the beaches.
