Contract Awarded for Miami Beach Erosional Hotspots

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, has awarded a $11.9 million contract to Eastman Aggregate Enterprises, LLC for the Miami Beach Hotspots beach renourishment project, part of the Miami-Dade County Beach Erosion Control and Hurricane Protection Project.

The contractor will place 220,000 cubic yards of beach-quality sand on more than 3,000 feet of critically eroded shoreline in two locations, near 46th Street and 54th Street.

Construction at each location will progress from south to north, creating a berm to catch the sand flowing south along the shoreline with the current.

Fill operations, tilling, demobilization and restoration of the 46th Street access is scheduled to be complete by November 9, 2016, with the remainder of the project complete by spring of 2017.

The renourished beach will help protect infrastructure, including iconic, historically and architecturally significant buildings on South Beach,” said Laurel Reichold, Corps project manager. “The Corps builds beaches to protect infrastructure, preserve wildlife, support the economy, and build coastal resiliency. Widening the beach to about 230 feet also improves habitat for sea turtle nesting.

The public is invited to attend an informational meeting on Tuesday, July 12 at 6 p.m. at the Ronald Shane Center, Miami Beach, Florida. The meeting will be hosted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Miami-Dade County and the City of Miami Beach. A brief presentation will be followed by a question and answer period.
