FEMA and GLO Funds Pay for Beach Erosion from Hurricane Harvey
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The City of Corpus Christi awarded a $734,199 North Beach Renourishment Project to the General Land Office (GLO) to restore the erosion sustained on North Beach from Hurricane Harvey. The beach renourishment process is set to begin on Wednesday, November 2. The estimated completion date for the project is Friday, November 18, weather permitting.
The scope of work will restore the beach to its pre-disaster design, function, and capacity by placing 8,300 cubic yards of sand along 3,200 feet of the beach. The Interlocal Cooperation Agreement for the North Beach Renourishment Project is funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and GLO. HDR, Inc. is the project consultant, and Brizo Construction is the contractor.
The beach renourishment work will begin at the Bridgeport Avenue parking lot and continue north to Golf Place. The boardwalk located along the beach will remain open throughout the project. The public is urged to be aware of the safety signage work zone.
