The City of Virginia Beach Department of Public Works, Engineering proposes to construct an open pile pier and approach road, dredge 1,000 cubic yards channelward of the pier end, install 2 mooring dolphins, 2 walking ramps and a retaining wall between the approach road and the pier. The proposed work would occur in the Eastern Branch of the Lynnhaven River adjacent to 321 Hutton Lane in Virginia Beach, VA. The purpose of the facility is to moor barges used for dredging projects in the Eastern Branch of the Lynnhaven River to offload dredge spoil into trucks which then haul the material to approved disposal facilities. The proposed approach road would impact 50 square feet of scrub shrub tidal wetlands, the dredging would impact 3,200 square feet of tidal vegetated wetlands, the proposed pier would shade 1,790 square feet of tidal wetlands. The public notice comment period ends on October 16, 2017.
