FL - Dredge is back in Destin and ready to finish what it started
The dredge is back and is expected to finish what it started by the middle of next week.
In late February, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer led-project started its efforts to dredge out East Pass and make it safer for boaters to navigate, but at the same time use the sand to restore the beaches just east of the jetties. The $2 million project was suppose to take between four and six weeks.
However, with about a weeks worth of work left to do, the dredge broke in early April and had to go to Mobile, Alabama, for repairs.
But the dredge and crew arrived back in Destin early this week and began work on Wednesday.
