VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — A $20 million project to replenish a 5-mile stretch of beach in Virginia is beginning after scheduling delays.

Sand for replenishing Sandbridge Beach is coming from the Sandbridge Shoal, a site a few miles offshore. Contractors will widen the beach up to 90 feet and raise it to six feet.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will start mobilizing equipment at Little Island Park.
