Beach Renourishment on Pawleys Island!

Whew! The holidays are behind us and we are moving into the roarin’ 2020’s! Let this year be full of adventures, unforgettable experiences and time cherished with family and friends.

The island is buzzing with excitement as the renourishment project is making its way north, moving at a steady pace. Savannah, the cutter dredge, took a little break over the Christmas holiday but resumed on December 28th. Savannah is now operating from a secondary borrow area which is closer to shore and expected to increase the speed of operations.

The Charleston-based company, Marinex Construction, has been working on this large project since fall 2019. The project is designed to place 1.1 million cubic yards of sand onto 2.6 miles of beach from an area 2-3 miles south of Pawleys Island. Marinex has been working 24/7 to complete this task. The south end parking lot is still closed. The town is working with the county to reopen the parking lot but at this time does not have an anticipated date.

The project is expected to be completed in February 2020.  For more information and continual updates, please visit the Town of Pawleys Island website here!

We hope you will enjoy the new beach!
