USACE Awards Sunny Isles Beach Renourishment Contract

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, awarded a $8.6 million contract on August 9 to Eastman Aggregate Enterprises, LLC of Lake Worth, Florida, for the Sunny Isles Beach shoreline renourishment project.

Under the contract, which is part of the Miami-Dade County Beach Erosion Control and Hurricane Protection Project, the contractor will renourish critically eroded shoreline in Sunny Isles Beach.

The federal project, led by the Corps, in partnership with Miami-Dade County, Sunny Isles Beach and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, is cost-shared between the federal government (62.7%), with the remaining 37.3% non-federal cost split by Miami-Dade County (50.89%) and the state of Florida (48.19%).

In 2017, Eastman Aggregate successfully completed the Miami Beach Hotspots beach renourishment, a federal project in partnership with Miami-Dade County. The feedback we received from residents, and city and county staff, was very positive, and we look forward to partnering with them again on the Sunny Isles Beach project,” said Laurel Reichold, Corps project manager. “Beach renourishment protects infrastructure from seasonal storms and hurricanes, supports the economy, preserves wildlife and promotes coastal resilience.

Construction is expected to begin by late October or early November, with completion scheduled for March 2018. The contractor will place approximately 140,000 cubic yards of beach-quality sand on critically eroded shoreline in Sunny Isles Beach.
