Default Barges inside Blind Pass

Wife and I were down at sunset beach and noticed 2 large barges moored inside Blind Pass. Anyone know why they are there?

Are they full of rock? Might be to rebuild Beach Rd. after Hurricane Irma washed out the southbound lane.

They are replacing the barriers on the beach with rock because what they had out there is crap. They should of used rock the first time instead lets pay for it again

Oh yeah. I remember those unsightly things. Always thought they were temporary. Thanks for the link.
