Beach renourishment will bring hundreds of sand-filled trucks through Key Biscayne

Posted on April 15, 2024

This past week, hundreds of trucks began entering Key Biscayne loaded with sand, all part of the Village’s beach renovation project.

The incessant parade of heavy vehicles causes traffic congestion during the day, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. No beach restoration work is scheduled on weekends.

A total of 1,625 trucks will enter and leave the island to complete the program of feeding sand to the beach after years of coastline erosion due to storms. Trucks enter through public beach accesses on Oceana’s north and south sides. Trucks will stop along Sonesta Drive before unloading sand on the beach.

The city has asked residents to take extra precautions while heavy equipment is on the beach.

The project is expected to be completed by the start of May, the official start of the turtle nesting season.

Like the 2021 beach renourishment project, contractors will bring in approximately 25,000 cubic yards of sand, and dune revegetation is also underway with approximately 48,300 new plants.
