The Project includes restoring the barrier shoreline along the entire length of North Breton Island through beach, dune, and marsh fill placement utilizing an offshore sand source in the Borrow Area located approximately 3.3 nautical miles (NM) east of the Restoration Area in the Gulf of Mexico.This paper will discuss the design development and evaluation process for the restoration of an entire island.
