Marinex Secures St. Augustine Beach Renourishment Contract

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, awarded a $9.5 million contract to Marinex Construction, Inc. for the next scheduled renourishment of the St. Johns County Shore Protection Project.

According to the Corps, the project will renourish critically eroded shoreline between the southern limits of Anastasia State Park (8thSt.) in St. Augustine Beach.

This project exemplifies the great partnership between the Corps and St. Johns County,” said Project Manager Jason Harrah. The cost share is 80.5% federal and 19.5% non-federal.

Construction is expected to begin in November and will last for approximately three months. The contractor will place approximately 800,000 cubic yards of beach quality sand from the navigation channel and ebb shoal onto eroded areas.

The purpose of the project is to mitigate for down-drift shoreline impacts caused by the federal navigation channel at St. Augustine Inlet, and provide storm damage reduction for upland development.

A community meeting is scheduled for Thursday, November 2nd at 6 p.m. at the St. Augustine Beach City Hall. The purpose of the meeting is to provide information about the project, and any potential impacts to the area. A brief presentation will be followed by a question and answer period.
