Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company finished pumping sand on March 17 and is in the process of breaking down the piping and equipment. I finally got a look on Thursday morning and took some images from the ground as well as some aerial photos and video. The $10 million dollar contract called for a 15-foot high dune and 140 feet of beach and as you will see in the photos they provided at least that much. Beach grass was also planted on the dune and is protected by snow fence.
Below is a short before and after video to show how much new beach was added. Aerial Photos start on Page 3.
