Parking and beach access will close at Mickler’s Landing from this Thursday through Friday, June 21, and then again from Monday, June 24 through Friday, June 28.

Despite the upcoming closures, the restoration project is months ahead of schedule, according to the county.

St. Johns County said in its release that the project was originally set to finish around mid-August, but due to the “tireless work of Weeks Marine and county staff,” it is about two months ahead of schedule.

The Ponte Vedra Beach Restoration Project is set to provide substantial coastline fortifications, including dune reconstruction between 13 and 18 feet, beach berm elevation of approximately nine feet, and beach width increase of 40 to 180 feet post-construction.
