If you enjoyed the large, expanded beach last summer, the 2016 season will be even better. The next phase of the federal Cape Charles Navigation Project is set to resume within the next few weeks. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has released bid documents and the bid period will close on January 25, 2016. The next phase of the project involves the dredging of Cherrystone Channel to a depth of 18 feet—this will result in close to 200,000 cubic yards of fine sand dredge material being added to the Town beach, as well as the upland site. The project is expected to last 120 calendar days.
