The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has contracted with Weeks Marine to complete the much-anticipated beach replenishment project for the Delaware Beaches. The work is expected to begin on March 20, 2023 starting in Rehoboth Beach and will move southward to Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach, South Bethany and end at Fenwick Island.

It is estimated that the dredging and pumping operations will take approximately 2 weeks for each location, depending on weather conditions and other factors. Total cost for the project is estimated at $23.8 million and will be shared between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at 65%, and the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control at 35%.
