St. Joseph Peninsula Erosion Control
Contract Amount: $21,648,407
Location: Port St. Joe, FL
Project Duration: 01/2008-03/2009
The purpose of this project was to construct 7 ½ miles of beach, restore the dunes, and to protect the homes and properties along St. Joseph Peninsula.
Using the hopper dredge Bayport, Manson dredged approximately 3,607,246 cubic yards of sand to be pumped onto the beach. Sand was pumped from the dredge through submerged pipes to the shore where bulldozer crews then shaped and graded the sand.
