Schedule for Beach Nourishment

Pinellas County Coastal Management has announced a schedule change to the Sand Key and Treasure Island beach  re-nourishment project.

After filling the Treasure Island segments, Norfolk Dredging will move to Clearwater, and fill the beach from north to south, ending in Redington Beach. Sunshine and Sunset Beach Beaches will be filled first with sand dredged from John’s Pass. After the equipment is relocated, Ultimar Condos in Clearwater will be filled with sand dredged from the Egmont shoal borrow area. Construction will then proceed south and should be finished by the end of the year.  For more information, including a project fact sheet, PowerPoint presentation and an updated schedule, visit http://www.pinellascounty.org/environment/coastalMngmt/default.htm
