The city is partnering with the Virginia Port Authority, which is deepening the channel used by container ships bound for the Norfolk Harbor. Great Lakes Dredge & Dry Dock, which replenished the Oceanfront beach three years ago, will pump “beach quality sand” dredged from the channel onto Ocean Park beach.
Thanks to Mr Bradley W. Vanderwarker CoVB Engineer responsible for this crucial project for providing this presentation & especially for continuing to come out to meetings to share project updates, take questions & provide timely updates on a daily & weekly basis.
