The City of Cocoa Beach, in conjunction with Brevard County, has began the first phase of the Cocoa Beach dredging project.
This phase includes areas in the canal between Jack Drive and Kent Dr., according to the Cocoa Beach Public Works’ announcement.
Central Sand, Inc., the contractor, estimates that four to six weeks will be required to complete dredging in this area.
During the project, Central Sand will dredge 83,000 cubic yards of material from the city canals, placing the spoil on 10 acres of city owned land just north of Brightwaters Drive.
The dredging will be done Mondays through Fridays from approximately 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, according to Brevard County Natural Resources Management Department.
The canals will be closed to boat traffic during dredging and remain open on weekends.
