Weeks Marine, working with the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, piped sand ashore from a hydraulic dredge working at the east end of the Cape Cod Canal to deepen the channel. The sand was used to fortify the protective dune that fronts the parking lot ahead of the winter storm season. In past winters the area has been severely battered by erosion from northeast storms.
The final phase of the project is now underway, hand planting beach grass all along the newly shaped dune to give it more resiliency.
