Update about meeting!

Press release about meeting.

Eastern Shore Drive Drainage Improvements page.

“Definitely happening in May extending into June”

About Ocean Park beach being “truly restored” like Chix Beach was:

“This is a substantial volume of sand.”

Watch discussion by Jim White & Dan Adams with Prez of OPCL.

About “truly restored” vs “placement sites” for beach nourishment:

“Then we’re going to turn our sights on Cape Henry Beaches.”

About the pile of sand at Lynnhaven Boat Ramp:

“We plan on doing a truck haul, & place that material between Page Avenue & the gazebo at Duck Inn.”

About volume of sand:

“Truly restored” Ocean Park beach is getting ~ 400,000 cubic yards, LBR holds ~ 60,000 cubic yards, when Lynnhaven Inlet is dredged – happening soon – that yields ~ 100,000 cubic yards.
