Weeks Marine Kicks Off Navarre Beach Renourishment Project

The Navarre Beach renourishment project is now officially underway, according to the Santa Rosa County, Florida.

The project kicked off two weeks ago when the contractor Weeks Marine Inc. began with the mobilization of equipment. Two submerged pipelines, traveling from the Pensacola Bay staging area to Navarre Beach have made landing near the Beach Colony Resort and just east of Missouri Street.

At the moment, boats are preparing sublines for the two trailing suction hopper dredges that are scheduled to be onsite later this week.

The dredges will be used to excavate sand from same offshore borrow area used for the initial 2006 restoration project and place the sand on the beach.

During the works, approximately 1.6 million cubic yards of sand will be placed from just east of the Gulf Islands National Seashore to the eastern limits of the Navarre Beach Marine Park, increasing the width of the beach berm by 100 to 200 feet.

The restoration project also includes restoring the dune crest to a width of 30 feet and placement of native dune plants.

If all goes according to schedule, the project will be completed by mid-June.
