hopper dredge R.N. Weeks was able to operate about 75% of the time over
the past week and completed 52 loads. Weeks Marine reports that almost
1.4 million cubic yards of sand has been placed on the beach or about
53% of the project total. The completed section of beach is expected to
open to the public by the end of the week.
Construction continues to proceed south and Weeks Marine estimates that
it will take 21 work days to complete the south section of the project.
If the weather forecast holds, Weeks Marine expects to work most of the
time over the next few days.
