GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — A $4.8 million project is underway to restore beaches that were washed away in Galveston.

The Houston Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1tDCIeO) workers this week will begin adding sand to create new beaches in an area that for decades hasn’t had one.

Another portion of beach will be restored using some 120,000 cubic yards of sand after being washed away six years ago by Hurricane Ike. Workers also aim to construct a large dune system, which is necessary due to the rapidly eroding nature of the area.

The projects are being paid for through city, state and private funds.
