Longboat Key Beach Nourishment Progressing Rapidly
The Town of Longboat Key, Florida, has just released an update on the Longboat Key beach nourishment scheme.
The City said in the announcement that the work is progressing rapidly along Segment 3 with sand placement from Pelican Harbor (4241 Gulf of Mexico Drive) southward.
The project will progress south until approximately the second half of June to the access site across Gulf of Mexico Drive from Gulfshore/Buttonwood Cove (3710 Gulf of Mexico Drive).
Operations will then move southward from the same access point to Veinte (2675 Gulf of Mexico Drive).
The access at Atlas Street (4795 Gulf of Mexico Drive) has re-opened to the public, and the new beach is already home to several sea turtle nests.
The contractor will suspend operations on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday of Memorial Day weekend (May 28-30) to allow residents and visitors uninterrupted use of the beach.
