The Army Corp stopped the Beach Renourisment work on April 30, 2023 for sea turtle nesting season. They were able to finish the state park area and approximately 100’ south of the state park near The Renaissance. The Army Corp will resume the project again on November 1, 2023 and will start at the Meade Street access point and work their way North to where they left off. Following that ,The Army Corp will then use the access at South City Beach Park in Hallandale and work their way North to Iris Street. The Army Corp will then assess any other areas that may need renourishment and work on those , if needed. The tentative schedule has all the work above completed by April 30,2024 Turtle Season.
Segment III of the Broward County Shore Protection Project continues through April. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) awarded the Segment III Beach Renourishment construction contract to Continental Heavy Civil Corporation. This project area is along the shorelines of Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park, Dania, Hollywood, and Hallandale Beaches. The project is expected to place approximately 887,000 cubic yards of upland sand along the shoreline, with a 100% cost share by the federal government. Where feasible, shore protective dunes may be placed as part of the project.
Hollywood Schedule - Beach renourishment is scheduled for sections of Hollywood's North Beach the week of April 23rd. The project will take place until May 1st, when construction will pause until October 2023 during sea turtle nesting season.
The goal of engineered shore projects is to reduce risk and promote resilience in coastal communities. Shore projects help to reduce the damages - economic, environmental, infrastructure, human health and safety of tropical storms and hurricanes. Thousands of residents and businesses in Broward County will benefit from this shore project because storm events erode the beach rather than damaging or destroying coastal infrastructure. Beach nourishment projects also have inherent benefits in restoring critical habitat for shorebird and marine turtle nesting. The construction is estimated to cost $7,864,770 and is fully funded by the US Army Corps of Engineers. Project updates will be available on the Corps web and social media accounts, including the Jacksonville District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/JacksonvilleDistrict/ and on Twitter @JaxStrong
