Vilano Beach Renourishment in Full Swing

Vilano Beach is receiving beach-compatible sand through the beneficial use of dredged material, helping to reduce vulnerabilities and improve coastal resiliency in a community north of the St. Augustine Inlet.

The injection of much needed sand was made possible in a partnering between St. Johns County, the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District.

According to USACE, the Vilano Beach will be closed during construction activities in order to help protect the public and construction workers. Pipeline discharge, bulldozers and other construction operations are anticipated to operate 24 hours daily in multiple locations.

Construction operations prohibits vehicular beach access at both Vilano Beach and Porpoise Point; however, emergency vehicles will have access to the beach as will pedestrian traffic in most areas, reported the Corps. About 1,200 feet of the beach will close to the public at a time as work continues along the beach.

In total, the project will place approximately 250,000 cubic yards of sand to the damaged beach areas.

Construction began April 1 and is scheduled to end before the start of hurricane season, June 1.
