Collier County dune restoration project delayed

Posted on March 27, 2024

Collier County’s FEMA-funded project to restore the beach and dunes lost to Hurricane Ian is forecast to be completed a couple of months later than originally projected.

The first phase – the county’s emergency beach berm re-nourishment program, which saw 300,000 cubic yards of sand added to Naples area beaches (from Barefoot to Marco Island) – concluded last summer. However, Phase 2 – revegetating the constructed dunes – is in the county’s “internal review” system and has yet to be put out to bid.

Project Manager Larry Humphries remains optimistic the project will move forward this August or September.
