Rep. Zeldin, Army Corps and Local Elected Officials, to Announce Start of West of Shinnecock Inlet, Dune Road Project

PATCHOGUE, NY - On Monday, February 10, 2020, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) will be joined by Town of Southampton Supervisor Jay Schneiderman, other elected officials, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, local business owners and fishermen to announce the start of the dredge of Shinnecock Inlet and placement of an estimated 600,000 cubic yards of sand just West of Shinnecock Inlet (WOSI). This project will restore this area to its 2005 authorization level, a 15-foot-high dune with an associated 140-foot-wide beach berm from the toe of the dune, which would be a better, more robust outcome than simply restoring this area to its recent 2019 pre-storm level.

Multiple recent storms have caused severe damage to the dunes along the ocean side and led to severe flooding and washovers and a near breach of the barrier island just west of Shinnecock Inlet.

Last month,the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded a $10.7 million contract to Great L akes Dredge & Dock Company for the completion of the project, which is expected to be completed before the end of March, pending weather. Great Lakes brought in a Cutterhead Dredge to perform the beach replenishment work at WOSI, ensuring no impacts to other projects currently underway at Westhampton Beach and Fire Island Inlet to Moriches Inlet.

When: Monday, February 10, 2020, at 10:00am

Where: Shinnecock Inlet West Side 365 Dune Road, Southampton, New York 11968
