DI East End Beach

& Dune Restoration

 

Project Update 9.15.23

The East End Beach and Dune Restoration Project team has finalized engineering plans and specifications to ensure that a million cubic yards of sand is brought to the east end of the island, restoring our beach and dune habitats. The USACE/ADEM and ADCNR permits have been received (August 2023). The project, once constructed, will extend from East End Public beach to half way through DeSoto Landing neighborhood. The Town has successfully secured funding for full construction from National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund and from NFWF National Coastal Resilience Fund! The project is being advertised to secure a qualified marine contractor. This process can take 3+ months. Once under contract, the contractor will take several months to mobilize. On-ground construction will occur in the new year 2024.
