The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, has released the latest update on their Duval County Shore Protection project, saying that the work is currently progressing from Florida Blvd. to 12th Street. 

The $15.7 million Duval County Shore Protection construction contract was awarded earlier this year to Manson Construction of Seattle, Washington.

Under the agreement, the contractor will place around 850,000 cubic yards of sand on about 8 miles of eroded beaches, including Jacksonville, Neptune and Atlantic beaches and the southern mile of Hanna Park.

The Duval County project was initially constructed in 1978-80 and since then, six principal renourishments occurred (1985-87, 1991, 1995, 2005, 2011 and 2016-17) in addition to periodic placement of maintenance-dredged sand.

Beach renourishment normally occurs about every five to six years to maintain beaches as part of the project.
