Work underway on Dauphin Island Causeway Shoreline restoration


Work on the Dauphin Island Causeway Shoreline Restoration project has begun.


In the early stages of the project, located on Mobile Bay near the Dauphin Island Causeway north of Cedar Point Pier, access channels will be created for crews that will later install rock breakwaters and fill material. This will restore 3.3 miles of shoreline on the west side of Dauphin Island Causeway to protect both SR 193 and the saltmarsh habitat to its east.


The project is funded by grants from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) Emergency Coastal Resilience Fund and the Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund with the goals of protecting infrastructure and creating habitat injured by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
