The 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.
