Construction on Canaveral Harbor Sand Bypass

Monday, March 15, 2010

The Canaveral Harbor Federal Sand Bypass Project at the Port Canaveral in Fla. is scheduled for construction this month (March). As a result, sand that has accumulated on the north side of Port Canaveral's ocean inlet will be transported south of the inlet via hydraulic dredging equipment. Nearly 630,000 cubic yards of beach quality sand will be transported across the inlet and placed along approximately two miles of shoreline south of the inlet along the City of Cape Canaveral.  Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company, under contract to the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, will construct the project. The Canaveral Port Authority is the local sponsor and permit holder. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers fully is funding the project while the Canaveral Port Authority will provide extensive environmental monitoring and other support. The public can keep track of the weekly progress by visiting or calling the recorded Project Information Line at 321-394-3210.
