TREASURE ISLAND Ė Pinellas County Coastal Management and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host a public meeting Tuesday, June 10, 6 to 8 p.m., in the auditorium at Treasure Island City Hall, 120 108th Ave., to provide information about the upcoming beach nourishment project on Treasure Island and Long Key.
The beach nourishment project is tentatively set to place sand on select beaches from July through September, starting with Sunshine Beach, and followed by Sunset Beach, Upham Beach and Pass-A-Grille Beach. An estimated total of 555,000 cubic yards of sand will be used for the project.
The active beach construction areas will extend about 500 to 800 feet in length and will be closed to the public. Sand ramps over pipes will provide safe access for visitors to the shoreline north and south of active work areas.
