Beach re-nourishment scheduled for this fall in Englewood

What to expect…here are common questions & answers:

Q: What are the dates of the project?

A: It is expected that some equipment will be staged on/around the beach immediately following the end of Turtle Season (Oct. 31st). Actually work on the beach will not commence until the conclusion of the WaterFest Boat Races which are scheduled for Nov. 22nd – 24th. The completion date is March 31, 2020.

Q: Will the Beach be closed?

A: No. Beach access will permitted in areas not occupied by the construction crews. Those constructions zones will be designated with orange fencing. Once a construction zone is completed, there will be a large pipe left in place that will cause some inconvenience. Provisions will be made to navigate around/over the pipe, but the pipe will be on the beach until the entire project is completed.
