Additional Bid Information
This project consists of providing the dredge, support vessels, labor, equipment, supplies and all other materials and submittals to perform all operations for (1) excavating, transporting, placing, dressing and grading sand fill from an offshore borrow area; (2) Construction of Hummocky Dunes and installation of new beach sand fencing (4) providing and planting new native beach and dune vegetation; and (5) providing necessary environmental compliance testing as required by pending regulatory approvals for the project.

The presently estimated quantity of offshore sand to be excavated and placed is 1,135,000 cubic yards. The fill site extends for approximately 8,400 feet west of Ft. Gaines, on the eastern end of Dauphin Island, Alabama. A suitable borrow source has been identified at a site approximately 4.5 miles south of the fill site. Water depths at this borrow site range from approximately 16 to 22 feet, with the average depth being about 18.5 feet. The thickness of cut proposed is 13 to 18 feet. Construction is expected to be performed by use of a hydraulic pipeline dredge (directly to shore or using one or more scows/barges). Prospective Bidders are alerted to the existing shallow water depths surrounding the fill site, which may limit or preclude use of a hopper dredge and/or require substantial length of pump-out pipeline, and to the presence of newly restored subaerial island features between the borrow and fill sites. A mechanical (clamshell) dredge will not be allowed.
