Broward County ’s Beach Renourishment Project (Segment III)

Week Ending June 12, 2005

During the past week, the dredge Liberty Island excavated and placed onto the beach approximately 45,400 cubic yards of material. This is a smaller quantity than previous weeks because the ship was in Port Everglades June 10 and 11, due to the rough weather from Tropical Storm Arlene. However, on Sunday, June 12, the dredge returned to work and completed three loads by early Monday morning.

Approximately 298,000 cubic yards of sand has been placed in total along nearly 3,160 feet of beach.

At the rail siding in Opa Locka, approximately 15 rock-filled mattresses have been completed in anticipation of beginning construction of the two T-head groins and the spur at John U. Lloyd Beach State Park.

The pictures below, taken between June 6 and June 11, show the progress of the beach fill from atop the Westin Diplomat Resort and Spa web cam.
