A state coastal restoration organization along with volunteers are installing 9,000 feet of sand fence along a two-mile stretch of coastline west of Long Beach Road in Cameron Parish.
The project will run Thursday-Saturday. Up to 200 rows of sand fence - posts and wooden slabs connected with wire that catch sand to create dunes - will be installed.
The project is funded by nearly $70,000 in federal and private grants.
KATC's Steven Allbritton is there and will have a full report at 5 and 6.
