The Upham Beach nourishment project is now underway, according to the Pinellas County latest update on the project.

According to the county, the beach nourishment scheme officially started yesterday, May 28th.

Norfolk Dredging, which constructed the Sand Key and Treasure Island projects last year, will nourish the Upham Beach.

In total, construction is expected to last about 2 weeks and will place approximately 150,000 cubic yards of sand on the beach.

The sand placement will be from north to south, with about 700 feet fenced off around the active work area. Sand for the project will be dredged from Blind Pass.

The Upham Beach nourishment project was awarded last fall and is expected to cost $3.5 million with the Federal government paying $2.1 million and the County and State each paying $678,000.
