If the west berth of the port ends up getting inundated with sediment without the spit, which especially given the port's statement in the article seems likely, the cost of any solution, whatever it is, will be in the millions of dollars.

This would be a good opportunity to advocate for fixing all problems at once by following the original plan for a berm off 3rd ave with windsports access on it. However, I worry that all decisions will be done without any consideration for us, as usual. Lots of work is needed to overcome that.

anyone have any updates on Nexen? I'd like to see some updated drone shots if anyone knows of any.

This satellite view seems pretty recent.

The spit gap is a few meters longer.
Also interesting that there is very little erosion of the remaining low spit.

Anyone know where they are storing the materials that they are removing? Is it still piling up on the side of the road before the gate?
