Updates on GLDD Dredge Beach Nourishment project at Avon Beach

Posted on July 13, 2022

Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company’s second hopper dredge, the Liberty Island, arrived in Avon and resumed pumping operations on the evening of Friday, July 8, 2022.

As of Sunday, July 10, 2022, the volume from the Liberty Island combined with the amount placed by the first hopper dredge, the Ellis Island, from June 19–29, 2022, totals over 50 percent of the project volume (i.e., 500,000 cubic yards out of 1 million cubic yards). Over one mile of the Avon oceanfront has been nourished, and another approximately 1.5 miles needs to be completed.

Coastal Science & Engineering—which is tasked with managing the beach nourishment project that is being performed in Avon by Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co.—has released its second newsletter announcing the latest updates on the project.
