Beginning Monday, October 30, 2017 at 8:00 a.m. the City’s hurricane debris removal contractor, Bergeron and their crews will be conducting operations on Hollywood Beach. Tons of sand that was displaced during Hurricane Irma is now encompassing and up against the entire length of the Broadwalk wall and beach creating a safety hazard. Crews will use heavy equipment to move the sand back into place along Hollywood Beach. This beach sand redistribution operation will
run from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for the next three weeks. This project includes pre-authorization from the State of Florida and Turtle Monitor who are providing
pre-inspection of the areas in order to protect sea turtle nests.
As the tractors and equipment move into each beach area, the area being cleared and
leveled will be cordoned off and a Project Supervisor from Bergeron will be on
site to monitor crews. City Beach Maintenance Supervisor Salafrio and CRA
Beach Maintenance Supervisor Tiru will also be monitoring the project.
The length and parameter of this sand removal and redistribution will
be from the north in front of the Positano Condo complex at Sherman Street south to Magnolia Street in front of the Quadomain Complexes, including the entire length of the Broadwalk wall. Upon completion, this project will be submitted to FEMA for
reimbursement. Activities are coordinated in partnership with the Community Redevelopment Agency, the Hollywood Police Department, Department of Public Works, Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts and Hollywood Fire
Rescue and Beach Safety.
