Naples project begins to protect beaches, prevent road flooding

Posted on January 9, 2023

DBE Utilities Services and the City of Naples began mobilizing heavy equipment this week in a $35 million project designed to protect streets from flooding, reduce pollution and beach erosion.

The construction company brought equipment to the Third Avenue North beach access, where a new storm water pump station and pipes will stretch 1,000 feet into the Gulf of Mexico. Part of a larger project, they’ll take about three months to install underground and below the water’s surface.

A drilling rig will do its work from the beach end, making two carrier holes for the pipe.

It’s part of a $35 million water management system that will eliminate most of the storm water outfalls — or large pipes — lining Naples beaches for storm water improvements along Gulf Shore Boulevard North.
