FOLLY BEACH, SC -

A stabilization project is underway to make repairs to the Folly Beach park that was severely damaged during Hurricane Irene in 2011.

Contractors continue to work around the clock to pump sand onto the beach, and since May 5, approximately 175,000 cubic yards of sand have been put in to place. The contractors constructing the terminal groin are currently scheduled to begin driving steel sheet piles for the groin on May 15.  

Crews have begun working around the clock dredging sand from the Folly River and pumping sand onto the beach.

The goal is to establish a dry, longer beach on which the construction for the terminal groin can begin. Contractors working on building the terminal groin plan to begin mobilizing equipment, with plans to include bringing in the first loads of steel sheet piles and eventually driving the piles for the groin.

Stay tuned to our website - www.ccprc.com/BringBackTheBeach - for regular updates on the status of the project and the future opening of this beloved park. We are working hard to "bring back the beach."
