The United States Army Corps of Engineer’s beachfill operation will begin in mid to late November in Bethany Beach. It is estimated that once the project begins in Bethany Beach it will take 30 days to complete. The project is scheduled to begin in mid-October in South Bethany and when complete will move to Bethany Beach.
In mid-October the project contractor, Weeks Marine, will bring supply piping ashore on the oceanfront at Campbell Place, where it will remain until work begins in Bethany Beach in November. When the project begins in Bethany Beach it will pump sand onto the beach restoring width and height to the beach and repairing dune as needed.
Pumping will begin in Bethany Beach at Campbell Place and move north to Oceanview Parkway, and then return to Campbell Place and move south to Oakwood Street. The beach will be closed in 1000’ sections during the course of the project.
