PASCAGOULA — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has finished pumping roughly 350,000 cubic yards of sand onto the beach, signaling the end of a $12-million Corps project that began Sept. 23.
Workers are now burying geotubes about five feet underground to help prevent erosion.
Corps spokeswoman Susan Rees says the project is one of 15 the Corps took on after Hurricane Katrina destroyed South Mississippi beaches in 2005.
The City of Pascagoula plans a promenade with a walking path, benches and landscaping to go along with other improvements.
