Pinellas County: Upham Beach Project on Hold

The Upham Beach stabilization project has been temporarily suspended due to projected rough winter weather, the Pinellas County said in their latest release. 

Two of the four planned rock T-groin structures to slow erosion of the beach have been completed since the project started in August.

The contractor, Weeks Marine, will reassess the weather in late January or early February to determine when they can resume the project.

A fenced staging area containing stored materials for constructing the northern two rock groin structures will remain at the site. All other areas of Upham beach will be open to the public until the contractor returns to finish the project.

Once work resumes in 2018, the contractor estimates it will take an additional three to four months to complete the project.

Upon resuming work, the project area restricted from public access will largely be isolated to the north end of the beach, said the county.
