PROJECT DESCRIPTION UPDATE:

The St. Joseph Peninsula Beach Renourishment Project will extend approximately 3.1-miles (16,254 feet) from DEP Monument R-89.5 south to R-105.5.  This 3.1-mile segment is the southern portion of the developed shoreline located between Rish Park (north) to the Stumphole Revetment (south).  The project consists of the placement of more than 700,000 cubic yards of clean white beach compatible sand to mitigate for the long-term erosion of the beach, and restore the storm damaged dunes.  Placing sand along the southern portion of the project limits will have an immediate benefit by mitigating for the long-term erosion but also over time, the beach to the north of Rish Park will gain sand from material transported to the north.  This concept was in the original design for the 2008/2009 beach fill project and was verified in the results of the post-construction monitoring. The construction of the project, consisting of mobilization/demobilization and sand placement, is anticipated to take less than 90-days from start to finish, and occur within an allowed timeframe between June 1 and November 30, 2018.  It is anticipated that therestored dunes will be planted with native dune vegetation in the Spring of 2019.
