It was reported to be a test run for them to see if it is feasible to dump all the old 3 mile rubble out there or recycle it.

Glad to see more stuff going out. But if they push those small concrete pieces like in the picture they will be under the sand covered up in a year. There is a spot to the sw of the barges that has covered up from a few stotms. That would be a good spot to put small pieces of concrete. On top of the old stuff.

Any word on plans for the bridge rubble once they tear down the existing bridges? Agree it would be nice to place it in such a way that it stays above the sand for a few years.
