HILPON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - A $20 million project to rebuild the beaches on Hilton Head Island is being delayed.

The Island Packet of Hilton Head reports (https://bit.ly/1QZY4iT ) that work on the project to pour 2 million cubic yards of sand on the beach was to have begun Tuesday. But the project has been set back because of delays getting equipment to the island.

Some equipment was being used on the Gulf Coast and is stuck off southwest Florida until rough weather and seas clear. The arrival of that equipment has to be coordinated with the arrival of a dredge from Alabama and about 45,000 feet of pipeline from New Jersey.

A revised schedule calls for the work to begin June 1 and finish in mid-August with another section of beach being rebuilt in October.
