VIRGINIA BEACH -- Virginia Beach Public Works is scheduled to begin sand replenishment of Cape Henry Beach- just in time for summer.
Currently, there are about 80,000 cubic yards of sand stockpiled south of the Lynnhaven Boat Ramp and Beach Use Facility.
Moving 60,000 cubic yards to Cape Henry Beach – which was last replenished in 2010 - will allow contractors to set up for the Lesner Bridge replacement project.
McLean Contracting Company, contractors for the bridge project, will need part of the stockpile area as a staging and laydown area for materials.
Trucks will begin hauling sand as early as the second week of May and are expected to be finished in six to eight weeks.
The total cost for the replenishment is estimated at $700,000 and will be funded from the Lesner Bridge replacement project contingency fund.
