Project was completed in 2016 for cuts 1, 3, and 4 to the authorized project depth by removing 80,000 cubic yards of material from the Federal channel and placed on the beach at Keewaydin Island. The Jacksonville District continues to perform project condition surveys of the Federal channel. Project was placed on hold due to Bi-Partisan Budget Act of 2018 supplemental funding being rescinded. There is approximately $100k in funding available that can be used to add an additional placement site north of the Inlet. Could be a placement option if funding is restored next FY. BCOE Certification was not completed and the project schedule was revised to push it out to FY20.
