Port Everglades Sand Bypass

 

A supplement to the County’s beach management plan is sand bypass at Port Everglades. Similar to current bypass operations at Hillsboro Inlet, the project aims to restore littoral drift to Segment III County beaches which are chronically eroded due to the barrier effects of Port Everglades inlet. Bypassing at the inlet is the only means to physically transfer sand to the south and restore the southerly flow of sand. The project has local support by various cities and environmental stakeholders and contains the components vital to a successful regional sediment management program. The bypass project is in the final stages of permitting, and barring no unforeseen delays, it is anticipated for construction in summer 2019.​​
