Dredging operations to renourish the central beach area of Boca Raton were set to begin March 29, the city said.
Contractor Weeks Marine Inc. will dredge approximately 530,000 cubic yards of sand from two borrow areas about 2,500 feet offshore and place it on the beach immediately south of Red Reef Park and continuing south to the Boca Raton Inlet. The project area is about 1.45 miles long. Construction operations will occur on a 24/7 basis until the project is completed.
The city is posting updates on its website, www.myboca.us. Click on “Central Beach Renourishment Project.”
