On September 24, 2019 the Board of County Commissioner (BCC) approved the 2019 Beach Renourishment Project. Contract 19-7654 was awarded to Earth Tech Enterprises, Inc. to haul and place sand on Park Shore, North Park Shore and Clam Pass beaches. Stewart Mining in Immokalee will provide sand for the project through a separate existing material supply contract. Construction Engineering Inspection (CEI) will be performed by Collier County Coastal Zone Management (CZM) with third party auditing and quality assurance provided by APTIM Engineering.
The project will utilize the Horizon Way beach access to place half of the sand on the southern half of the project and the Gulf Shore Beach pedestrian access to place the remaining half of the sand via conveyor on the north end of the Project. Mobilization and staging will begin on October 7, 2019 (Gulf Shore Access) and October 12, 2019 (Horizon Way). Both locations will have sand hauling and placement begin on October 16, 2019 with an anticipated completion date of January 1, 2020. This project will also employ electronic truck tracking to control route traffic to and from the Immokalee mine.
Staff is working with the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, Lee County Sheriff’s Office and the City of Naples Police Department to inspect trucks, define staging areas and provide maintenance of traffic support.
Hours of operations will be 7 days a week from sunup to sundown. Beach closure notices were issued on September 30, 2019 and October 2, 2019.
