Longboat Key Beach Nourishment Moves Forward

The Town of Longboat Key has just announced the latest update from their 2016 Beach Nourishment Project.

The project team is closely watching the increasing wave and tidal surge conditions created by Tropical Storm Colin, the Town stated.

The storm will create rough surf along the Longboat Key shoreline and will affect sand placement, sea turtle nests and shorebird nests.

Beach construction continues to move quickly along Segment 3, which is over 70 percent complete.

Sand placement is now at Bayport, progressing southward to Beach Harbor Club (3810 Gulf of Mexico Drive) and Gulfshore (3743 Gulf of Mexico Drive).

Barring storm delays, work in this segment is expected to reach the construction access at Gulfshore/Buttonwood Cove (3710 Gulf of Mexico Drive) by the week of June 13.

Operations will then move southward from the same access point to the 2900 block of Gulf of Mexico drive, north of the public access at 2825 Gulf of Mexico Drive.

Since the project started in April, over 186,000 tons of sand have been delivered to Longboat Key.
