Naples Beach Renourishment Project Brings Over 55,000 Cubic Yards of Sand
Over 55,000 cubic yards of sand, delivered by trucks, will be placed on Naples beaches impacted by Tropical Storm Debbie which came through in June 2012. The project begins November 12, 2014 and is expected to be completed by December 20, 2014. No work will occur over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend November 27-30. The project will operate six days per week, Monday through Saturday, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The sand will be placed on various sections of Naples Beach south of Doctors Pass (Mooring Line Drive). The sand will be unloaded at Lowdermilk Park, 3rd Avenue North and 17th Avenue South.
