Duval County Shore Protection Project Set to Resume

Work on the Duval County Shore Protection Project will begin again in April 2017.  The project is nourishing eroded beach and rebuilding dunes devastated by Hurricane Matthew's passing in October 2016.  The City of Jacksonville and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Jacksonville District expedited beach clean-up, land and sea surveys, contracts, and construction work along the shoreline.

The additional dune-work, funded by the City of Jacksonville, will continue on all beaches, including Jacksonville, Neptune and a portion of Atlantic Beach.

The work will address areas eroded by Hurricane Matthew in the southern portion of the project, as far south as 17th Avenue South.  Get project updates, a project overview, and project history at the Duval County 2016 Beach Renourishment Information website: http://olsen-associates.com/duval/ or http://www.saj.usace.army.mil/Missions/Civil-Works/Shore-Protection/Duval-County/.
