The Town hereby announces the pending completion of the southern segment of the above referenced project. Sand placement between Green Winged Teal Road and Brown Pelican Road is expected to be completed this afternoon or early this evening. This segment includes the Tower Beach access. Overnight, the project pipeline is expected to be removed from the newly constructed berm thereby restoring complete access to the beach. Sand placement activities will then commence at Green Winged Teal Road and advance northward to East Beach Lagoon Drive in coming weeks. Since beginning the project on August 23, approximately 100,000 cubic yards of sand have been placed along 4,000 feet of shoreline. Project information is available at the Town's website: www.hiltonheadislandsc.gov.
