The beach renourishment continues at Mid Beach Park (46 Street) as sand is delivered and placed in the southern segment of the project. The beach will continue to be closed off in 500-foot sections and re-opened once sand placement is completed and finalized. The U.S. Army Corps has begun to permanently re-open sections of the beach from 43 to 45 Street to the public.
To ensure public safety, we strongly remind all beachgoers, vendors, and concession operators to refrain from blocking the restricted and clearly marked transportation corridor south of Mid Beach Park. Please comply with all posted safety markers and instructions of the construction crew on site. While sections under construction will be closed to the public, beachgoers can sreach the water in nearby sections, and concessionaires can operate on the east (ocean side) of the transportation corridor.
The contractor is expected to begin its staging operations on September 12 in the southern portion of the 53 Street parking lot. While the staging area will be inaccessible to the public, the rest of the parking lot will remain open to the public. Mobilization of trucks and sand placement is estimated to begin in October. This segment will consist of sand placement beginning at 50 Street and ending at 56 Street. Beachfront concession operations in this area will be notified when their equipment will need to be removed from the beach.
