The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is scheduled to start the Pinellas County beach nourishment project at Sunshine Beach in the beginning of July. The date has not yet been determined.

Pinellas County beaches will remain open throughout the project. Public access to the active beach construction areas will be restricted. These areas will extend approximately 700 to 800 feet in length, and ramps over pipes will provide safe access for visitors to the shoreline north and south of the active work areas.

The first active area will be at Sunshine Beach, which is the northern tip of Treasure Island. It will be followed by Sunset Beach in Treasure Island and Upham Beach and Pass-a-Grille beach in St. Pete Beach.

An estimated total of 555,000 cubic yards of sand will be used for the project at a total cost of $16.182 million.

Beach nourishment helps to preserve Pinellas County beaches, which are important for storm protection, tourism and nesting sea turtles and shorebirds.
