Broward County 's Beach Renourishment Project (Segment III)
Week ending July 31, 2005

During this period, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock excavated and placed onto the beach 87,642 cubic yards of sand along 2,850 feet of beach.

Beach filling has been completed from Magnolia Terrace southward to the Broward/Miami-Dade County line, and northward to approximately Azalea Street in Hollywood. Progress along the beach is accelerating because the section of beach being filled requires smaller amounts of material. To date, about 37 percent of the total project length of beach has been completed.

Work continued on groin S-3 (the southernmost structure) at John U. Lloyd Beach State Park. Stone filled mattresses were placed as foundation for armor stone at the “T” portion of the groin.
