The Town’s contractor, Weeks Marine Incorporated expects to restart beach renourishment activities in South Forest Beach no later than October 19, 2016.
The Town desires to replace the sand washed from our design template along the central oceanfront beach as a result of Hurricane Matthew. While the storm related sand losses from the template are measureable, the majority of the sand recently pumped on the beach remains in place.
From there, normal construction operations will resume. In coming days, work is expected to advance to the north adjacent to and then beyond Coligny, North Forest Beach and Shipyard. Work within this segment will proceed as far north as near the Windsor Court South development (adjacent southern Palmetto Dunes). A revised construction schedule is forthcoming and will be released when complete. Additional Beach Renourishment Project information is available at the Town’s website: www.hiltonheadislandsc.gov
