Rudee Inlet, the man-made inlet along one of Virginia Beach's shorelines, was recently dredged.

It's all because of shoaling from Hurricane Sandy.

The dredging took six days and cost 80, 000 dollars.

Shoaling is the buildup of mounds of sand underwater that can snag boats.

The dredge arrived in Virginia Beach last Saturday and wrapped up today.
