The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Jacksonville District has just released this amazing photo from their Brevard County Shore Protection Project.       

The project will renourish approximately 13.4 miles of shoreline using 1.1 million cubic yards of sand from the Canaveral Shoals Borrow Area II.

The contractor, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company (GLDD), will place sand on the North Reach (9.6 miles) and South Reach (3.8 miles). The North Reach is from Cape Canaveral through Cocoa Beach south to the northern end of Patrick Air Force Base. The South Reach includes the towns of Indialantic and Melbourne Beach.

The cost of the project is $17.5 million and is 100 percent federally funded.
