As a friendly reminder from last week’s “Today in the Bay”, a sand excavation project at South Beach will take place beginning Monday, March 4.
Sand excavation will be completed in two phases and will aim to be completed within a four-week timeframe. It is important to note that contractors will be working at 6 a.m. in order to complete the project by no later than May 1 before the start of turtle season.
Phase I will have two staging areas – Stage Area 1 (Multi-Purpose Deck) and Stage Area 2 (Old Sunset Cafe). Contractors will make adjustments to accommodate beach fitness classes and other operations.
Phase II will consist of two staging areas which are both in front of Sandbar.
Work includes clearing and removal of vegetation, sand excavation under deck and relocation of sand to beach and dune areas.
As work progresses, modifications to the schedule, scope, and approach to executing the work, may be made.
