Dredging To Begin At Rudee Inlet In VA Beach

Posted: Updated:

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - The Army Corps of Engineers is set to begin dredging the Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach.
    
The Wilmington, N.C.-based dredge Meritt will spend four days removing shoaling in the channel.
    
The project begins Monday.
    
Engineers expect to dredge about 20,000 cubic yards of material, which will be placed directly north of the entrance channel and inlet jetties.
    
The $78,000 project is 72 percent federally funded. Virginia Beach will fund the remaining 28 percent.
    
Rudee Inlet is on the Atlantic Ocean side in Virginia Beach.  The project provides access to the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean for commercial fishing vessels, charter fishing boats, head boats and a wide range of private recreational vessels.
