Another dredging of Little Lagoon Pass. This time not only from the water but along the shoreline as well.
Engineers call it “mechanical dredging” where tractors, excavators and other heavy equipment are used to remove the sand and move tons of sand clogging the pass.
Heavy weather over the last couple of weekends hasn’t helped the problem. Not only did they help push sand into the pass they eroded the shoreline in places. That’s where most of the sand will be re-distributed.
This isn’t the first time they have had to do this since the widening of the pass. In July there was a similar project. This project is expected to last 3 to 6 weeks.
