The Jacksonville District continues to perform project condition surveys of the Federal channel. With class 3 O&M Supplemental (P.L. 115-123) funding, the team performed new surveys for updated volumes and completed the plans and specs for advertisement in March 2020 and contract award on April 21, 2020. Approximately 87,000 cubic yards of material were removed from Cut 1 and the Settling Basin and placed on Keewaydin Island located south of the inlet. Construction activities were completed in August 2020. The Corps is currently evaluating engineering and environmental requirements for a northern beach placement as an option to the southerly beach placement.
