​GALVESTON – ​​The Texas General Land Office (GLO), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Galveston District and the Galveston Park Board of Trustees have completed the second of three beach renourishment projects here.

The project created new beaches west of 61st St., an area in front of the seawall that has been without a beach for several decades. As of earlier this month, 434,517 cubic yards of sand have been placed on the beach, which has provided 3,725 feet of new beach and a width of about 300 feet.

The first project was located near the west end of the Seawall at Dellanera Park. It was completed in March. The third project will be from 12th to 61st streets and will begin in early 2016.

In total, over two million cubic yards of sand will be deposited on Galveston beaches. The combination of the three projects is the largest series of beach nourishment projects in the history of Texas.
