With about 600 feet to go until Crossover 1, we are getting close to completing sand installation on the dune! Next week sand hauling and grading will take place Tuesday through Friday. Installation of sand fencing, grass planting, and work on the crossovers will continue as sand placement on the dune finishes up in the next few weeks.
Dune Restoration Update: Due to the extreme cold temperatures, work is on hold and will resume next week, Tuesday-Friday. Hopefully some milder temps will speed up work and move us close to finishing the sand installation part of the project.
