Jacksonville District Projects in Full Swing

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, is responsible for 1,300 miles of the state’s 1,800 miles of coastline, constructing and maintaining over 30% of the nation’s total shore protection projects.

As in previous years, the Corps have been very busy placing sand on shorelines across the state in preparation for the coming storm season.

Some of the latest projects include:

 

  • Pinellas County Shore Protection Project kicked off this week;
  • Brevard County Shore Protection Project finished up this past month;
  • St. Johns County Shore Protection Project is underway;
  • Nassau County Shore Protection wrapped up last week, and will start back up again later this year;
  • St. Lucie County Shore Protection Project is underway;
  • Martin County Shore Protection Project is underway.

Launched in March, the Martin County shore protection project on Hutchinson Island is being realized through communication and collaboration of the County, the Jacksonville District and Great Lakes Dredge & Dock of Oak Brook, Illinois.

During the works, GLDD will place around 400,000 cubic yards of sand on four miles of eroded beach, widening the beach berm and raising the elevation of the beach.
