Tybee Island is moving sand reserves to stabilize dunes on Gulick Street

Listen to this article.

TYBEE ISLAND — As part of an ongoing beach nourishment and dune restoration project, the City of Tybee Island this week will be moving its remaining sand reserves from Polk Street to Gulick Street to stabilize dunes in the area.

The reserve sand, located across from the Department of Public Works at 76 Polk Street, was used during the last storm season to repair scarping at key crossovers and to close at-grade crossovers during Hurricane Dorian.

Given the expanded beach and newly restored dunes, Tybee Island is in a much stronger position to withstand this year’s storm season.

However, the city will maintain a smaller sand reserve just in case, at a location to be determined later this summer.
