BEACH RENOURISHMENT PROJECT
Collier County has designed and permitted a significant beach renourishment project to address beach erosion and resiliency at City of Naples’ beaches. The project will include mining, transportation, and placement of high-quality beach sand. The area of renourishment is 0.8 miles of coastline from Doctors Pass (to the north), through to Lowdermilk Park (to the south).
This process will occur via a truck haul operation that will require approximately 3,188 one-way dump truck loads to place 47,500 cubic yards of beach sand. The sand will be transported to the north side of Lowdermilk Park. Sand will be moved and spread by heavy equipment on the beach. Pedestrians should be alert for construction workers and equipment on the beach. Your cooperation and patience are appreciated during construction.
The contractor shall begin placing sand on beach no later than November 2, 2020. The hours of operation extend from 7 a.m. to 7 p. m., with no work being allowed on Sundays. Throughout the project, the northern park exit onto Gulf Shore Boulevard and the northern parking areas will be closed to the public, along with the northern beach access (walking) path. Lowdermilk Park’s southern entrance at the traffic signal across from Banyan Boulevard will be converted to two-way traffic. No beach renourishment construction will occur the Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of Thanksgiving week (November 26-29) or the week of Christmas (December 24 to January 3).
Questions concerning this project should be directed to the City of Naples’ Streets and
