GALVESTON - Sand will be dredged from the Galveston Ship Channel for a $4.8 million beach restoration project that begins December 1.
Crews plan to restore about 120,000 cubic yards of sand between the west end of the Galveston seawall and Dellanera RV Park.
The project aims to construct a large dune and replenish nearly 300 feet of beachfront.
Officials say the dune is necessary due to rapidly eroding nature of the area and its relative closeness to Farm-to-Market 3005, which is a hurricane evacuation route.
