Mathews Dredging On Hold Until October

In Mathews County, the dredging at Hole in the Wall, aimed at removing 40,000 cubic feet of sand, remains incomplete, with only 27,000 cubic feet removed so far. The contractor will return in October to finish the job, and the remaining sand will be used to enhance Haven Beach. At the same time, a breakwater project at the beach is set to start soon and should be completed before the end of this month. A proposal calls for expanding beach parking using less sandy dredge spoils.
