Work commenced on the Longboat Key beach nourishment project on April 6 with the first phase of the truck haul operation. Sixty-two truck loads of sand were delivered through the Colony access for sand placement south of the Islander Club groins. Over the next few weeks, approximately 40,000 cubic yards of sand will be delivered to this segment of the beach, and the daily number of trucks will increase to accelerate completion of the work. During this period, numerous sand hauling trucks will be traversing the beach from the Colony to the fill site, escorted by ATV for safety. When work is completed in this segment, truck haul operations will shift immediately to the Atlas Street area. Click here to view more status updates and view a video of sand being placed on the beach.
