About 35,000 cubic yards of sand have been deposited on the beach below Sea View avenue in Oak Bluffs, out of a total of nearly 85,000 yards scheduled to be placed on the beach to rebuild it as part of a $400,000 federal erosion control project now under way.
In addition to the beach buildup, a 570-foot stone groin is being built perpendicular to the shore out into Nantucket Sound to reduce further erosion of the town bathing and recreation area.
