PASCAGOULA — The Army Corps of Engineers is working to repair the sand beach along the west end of Beach Boulevard in Pascagoula.

The Sun Herald reports the corps built the beach after Hurricane Katrina and installed wind fencing and plantings to promote dune growth. Dunes help prevent sand from blowing onto the road and yards.

Hurricane Isaac damaged the project, and the corps is fixing it.

Jaci Turner, Pascagoula’s planning, inspection and engineering director, says they will replace sand to scoured areas, replant some of the eroded grasses and re-install the wind fencing.
