Miami Beach Renourishment About to Begin

Construction works are about to begin on the Miami Beach sand project, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District.

The $11.9 million Miami Beach erosional Hotspots project is part of the Miami-Dade County Beach Erosion Control and Hurricane Protection Project.

The Corps’ contractor, Eastman Aggregate Enterprises, LLC of Lake Worth, Florida, started mobilizing equipment at the 46th Street access and staging area today, and will place sand on the beach in that area within the next few weeks.

Construction will take place first at the 46th Street location, followed by the 54th Street location. Sand placement at each site will start at the south end and proceed north.

Sand fill operations, tilling, demobilization and restoration of the 46th Street access is set for completion by November 9, 2016, and the 54th Street location completion by spring 2017.

The project is cost-shared between the federal government (56.6%), Miami-Dade County (21.9%) and the state of Florida (21.5%).
