In February 2021, tThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) awarded the Segment III Beach Renourishment construction contract to Continental Heavy Civil Corporation. This project area is along the shorelines of Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park, Dania, Hollywood, and Hallandale Beaches. The project is expected to place approximately 887,000 cubic yards of upland sand along the shoreline, with a 100% cost share by the federal government through their Flood Control and Costal Emergencies (FCCE) program in response to recovery from Hurricane Irma. Where feasible, shore protective dunes may be placed as part of the project.
Segment III SPP plans and specifications are available with the USACE Segment III Shore Protection Project bid announcement. These plans depict expectations of shoreline fill placement and potential construction access points. According to local beach sand needs and environmental concerns, construction of the permitted design template will occur within the following shore length boundaries:
Dr. Von Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park: from the Port Everglades south jetty to FDEP reference (R) monument R-92
Dania Beach/Hollywood Beach: from Dania Beach Pier to Hollywood Beach, Lee Street (R-108 )
Hollywood Beach/Hallandale Beach: from Hollywood Beach, Iris Terrace (R-119) to the south county line (R-128).
Construction is currently paused for turtle nesting season and will resume on November 1, 2023. Placement with begin in Hallandale Beach, using the South City Beach Park access point, and will continue north through Hollywood Beach with an estimate completion date of April 2024.
Construction is during daylight hours, basically 7 am - 6 pm. The current schedule calls for work to be conducted Monday through Friday; however, work may occur on Saturdays if required to stay on schedule.
Initial construction began within the Dr. Von Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park on November 1, 2021 through May 31, 2022, and pausing from June 1, 2022 through October 31, 2022 for turtle nesting. Construction resumed November 1, 2022, with sand placement within the Dr. Von Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park, and placement was completed within the park on March 18, 2023. Immediately following construction in the state park, sand placement commenced in the City of Dania Beach, beginning on March 22, 2023 and was completed on April 30, 2023.
Construction will only occur on upland beaches for which property owners have granted construction easement and, where construction easement has not been granted, sand will only be placed below the erosion control line, which defines the boundary between State sovereign submerged lands and upland ownership. Beach construction access and/or staging will be, at the discretionary needs of the construction vendor, from the following beach access points:
- Approximate location of R-99, Dania Beach Public Parking Lot
- Meade Street, Hollywood Beach
- South City Beach Park, Hallandale Beach
