More sand for Kellogg Beach

To help protect Kellogg Beach from natural erosion, the Port of San Diego will be replenishing sand at the beach beginning on or shortly after Tuesday, July 6.

The work is anticipated to be completed in two to three weeks.

Approximately 2,200 cubic yards of natural sand will be placed on the beach between Kellogg Street and McCall Street. The Port placed 2,000 cubic yards of sand on the beach in June 2020.

In addition to protecting the beach from natural erosion, replenishing the sand will help maintain or improve the current slope of the beach into the water.

Kellogg Beach, located along the southwestern shoreline of the Shelter Island Yacht Basin in the Point Loma area of northern San Diego Bay, is a popular area for recreation and serves many residents and visitors.

The Port is working with the contractor to minimize impacts on the surrounding community and the environment. De La Fuente Construction, Inc., based in National City, Calif., is the project contractor.

For public safety, there will be limited beach access during construction hours, primarily between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The beach will be open in the evenings and on the weekends per posted beach hours.

The project is budgeted as part of the Port’s Major Maintenance Program, which is funded primarily via revenues the Port collects from its tenant businesses on and around San Diego Bay.
