How much do beach nourishment projects cost?

The Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines at Western Carolina University has a Beach Nourishment Viewer.

It is a cool tool that demonstrates where nourishment projects have occurred and how much it cost in real and nominal US dollar amounts.  Very cool.

For instance, the south end of Figure Eight Island in NC appears to have had several nourishment efforts since the late 1970's for a total of $6.3M in 2013 dollars.
