BEACH NOURISHMENT PROJECT NEARING COMPLETION, PIPE REMOVAL TO BEGIN THE WEEK OF MARCH 27 AT 57 STREET ON THE SEAWALL

Minimal Effects on Parking Along Seawall Anticipated During the Process

GALVESTON, TX (March 23, 2017) - Galveston's third phase of beach nourishment is wrapping up and that means crews will begin the process of removing the pipe used to complete the project.

1 million cubic yards of sand have been pumping since early January widening the beaches by up to 150 feet in some areas. The $19.5 million project has replenished more than three miles of beach along Galveston's seawall between 12 and 61 streets. Funding for the project was made available through the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Texas General Land Office, and the City of Galveston. The project is being administered by the Galveston Park Board.

Known as a 'pipeline dredge' project, pipes and pumps moved the sand from the Galveston ship channel at Big Reef (east of Apffel Park) to the expansion sites. The entire project took just over four months to complete.

It is the third sand nourishment project undertaken in Galveston since 2015. The first project was completed in March 2015 and added a half-mile of beach west of the Seawall at Dellanera Park. The second project, completed in November 2015, added more than 15 blocks of brand new beach along the Seawall west of 61Street. The projects are expected to reduce shoreline erosion and fortify the beaches.

PIPE REMOVAL INFORMATION:

As crews begin to remove equipment from the beaches, beach goers will be asked not to park along the Seawall from 57 Street in the south parking lane to 59 Street to allow for semi-truck staging. No parking will be in effect from 6am through approximately 10am, after which paid parking will resume. At any given time, onlookers can expect to see semi-trucks lined up while the pipes are stacked by crane onto the trailers. Flaggers will direct the trucks to leave the Seawall via 53rd Street. Trucks will turn east on Broadway to 51st Street and then head north to Harborside Drive. The remaining pipe that stretches from Stewart Beach down will be removed by being cut into sections, welded shut, and floated offshore for a barge to remove at the completion of the project.

FOR MORE INFORMATION:
