Beach Renourishment Project

January 24, 2022

Project Overview and Benefits:

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will begin a beach renourishment project in the vicinity of Allison Park at 6500 Collins.


Continental Heavy Civil (CHC) has been awarded the contract to complete this project. Beach renourishment protects against hurricane storm surges, rising sea levels and widens our beaches. The city is working closely with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and residents to ensure a smooth operation of the project.


What's Happening:

The contractor will begin staging operations in Allison Park this week, in which the southern portion of the park will be inaccessible. Approx. 22 parking spaces on the south side of the parking lot will be occupied.

What to Expect

  • This staging area will be used to house office trailers, generators, roll-off containers, and other construction equipment or materials.
  • Work in the staging area can occur from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Work on the beach will be limited from 7 a.m. or sunrise (whichever is later) through 7 p.m. or sunset (whichever is earlier). The contractor will work weekdays and weekends, as needed.
  • A portion of the beach walk pavers adjacent to Allison Park will be removed to allow for the delivery of sand to the beach and pedestrian checkpoints will be in place.
  • Moderate levels of construction noise are expected during the day.
  • Construction equipment, machinery and workers will be present in the work zone.
  • Sections of the beach undergoing active construction will be closed to ensure public safety. 
  • No Parking restriction will be in place in Allison Park.
  • Lifeguard towers will be temporarily relocated to allow for sand placement.
