Weeks Marine, the contractor for the Boca Raton beach renourishment project, has finished placing sand on the central and southern beaches, the city said in its latest announcement.

As a measure to help mitigate beach erosion, the project added approximately 450,000 cubic yards of sand to the central beach area, widening it by about 125 feet on average.

By dredging sand from the shoal outside the Boca Raton inlet, approximately 90,000 cubic yards of sand was added to the southern beaches.

From South Inlet Park to the Broward County line, the beaches were widened by about 45 feet, the city said.

As part of an ongoing effort in shoreline protection, the city’s Coastal Program Management Division coordinates beach renourishment projects about every ten years for the North and Central Project Areas and approximately every 6-8 years for the South Beach project area.
