County Provides Update on Beach Erosion Control Program (USA)

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, is passing the halfway mark on Broward County Beach Erosion Control Project construction.

Approximately 80,000 cubic-yards of beach quality sand now lies on 3.5 miles of shoreline between the Hillsboro Inlet and Washingtonia Avenue.

The sand placement is reconstructing areas of eroded beach and increasing storm protection to upland development along portions of Broward County. A side benefit is that it also helps restore shorebird and marine turtle habitat. The work is in response to impacts from Hurricane Sandy’s passage in 2012, and is 100% federally funded under the Flood Control and Coastal Emergency (FCCE) program.

Jacksonville District is placing approximately 7.5 million cubic yards of sand on 38.5 miles of eroded beaches in Florida as part of the FCCE program.

Eastman Aggregate Enterprises, LLC of Lake Worth, Fla. started sand deliveries Nov. 4 and the project remains on target for completion later next month.

Work began near Hillsboro Inlet, Pompano Beach and progresses 5.1 miles southward.
