USACE Announces Public Meeting for Miami Beach Scheme

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Miami-Dade County and the City of Miami Beach will host a public meeting for the Miami Beach erosional Hotspots beach renourishment project, part of the Miami-Dade County Beach Erosion Control and Hurricane Protection Project.

The public is invited to attend an informational meeting on Tuesday, July 12 at 6 p.m. at the Ronald Shane Center in Miami Beach, Florida.

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.”

A small business contractor will place 220,000 cubic yards of beach-quality sand from an upland mine on more than 3,000 feet of critically eroded shoreline in two locations, near 46th Street and 54th Street.

The areas affected by construction include the 4400-4700, and 5300-5500 blocks of Collins Avenue, and staging areas at Indian Beach Park and Beach View Park. Construction is scheduled to begin this summer and be complete by spring 2017.
