Renourishment project to begin moving north as work continues in Duval County beaches

Posted on June 3, 2024

The first weekend of the summer kicked off, and hundreds of people visited the beaches as the beach renourishment project continues in Jacksonville Beach.

The project will cover about 10 miles of Atlantic, Neptune and Jacksonville beaches from the St. Johns River down to the Duval-St. Johns County line.

Access points south of 20th Avenue were closed for Memorial Day but reopened this weekend.

Back in April, the Army Corps of Engineers started the project to build a dune and a beach berm with offshore sand.

The goal is to help restore the beaches after the tropical storms over the years.

This is the first big project for the county beaches since 2017.

The project has been broken down into sections.

On Monday, the project will move north toward Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park.

The beach access areas between 16th and 18th Avenue will be closed for safety.

The Army Corps of Engineers encouraged beachgoers to use access points to the north and south.
