The Army Corps of Engineers is working on beach renourishment in Surfside and Garden City and will move to North Myrtle Beach this fall.

Grand Strand beaches are set for renourishment after two storms — Hurricane Matthew and Hurricane Irma — tore through the area starting in 2016.

Garden City, Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach have specific dates for the project.
