Virginia Beach Renourishment
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- An aerial view shows the beach renourishment area near 25th and 26th streets at the Oceanfront Jan. 10, 2013. The beach was 50- to 280-feet wide and dredged sand increased the beach to as much as 300 feet, with a minimum elevation of 8.5 feet. The work was part of the Virginia Beach Hurricane Protection and Beach Renourishment Project, which replenished 1,440,250 cubic yards of sand between 15th and 70th streets.
