Beach Sand Renourishment Project
A beach sand renewal project for north Naples area beaches is underway with sand being brought to several Naples beach access points by truck.
Work is progressing well and is ahead of schedule. Work at Vanderbilt Beach is complete. Work continues at Park Shore Beach and Naples Beach between 2nd Avenue South and 8th Avenue South and is progressing rapidly. Crews are currently adding sand to the beach in front of The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. Lowdermilk Park on Naples Beach will close the evening of November 17 and will reopen for the 4-day Thanksgiving weekend.
Beach goers are asked to stay clear of fenced-off work areas and to keep a safe distance from trucks and the sand spreading work.
