A U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District’s maintenance dredging project to maintain the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway in Venice, Florida, is currently underway, the City of Venice reports.

The project involves removal of shoaled sediment and use of the dredged material on the beach and nearshore area to take advantage of ecosystem restoration opportunities.

According to USACE, the dredging operations are scheduled to run for several months and be completed before the end of the calendar year.

Work near Venice involves maintenance dredging within an approximately 5-mile stretch of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.

USACE said that, over time, coastal processes have resulted in significant shoaling and deposition of sediment within the waterway, and maintaining long-term navigation requires the removal of these sediments.

The morning of Monday, November 4, the South Jetty walkway will be temporarily closed so USACE’s contractor can place the dredging pipe across the Jetty. A bridge span will be put in place to allow pedestrian traffic over the pipe while construction takes place, the city said in their project update.
