Sunny Isles Beach to be renourished


Written by on June 2, 2017

A plan to renourish Sunny Isles Beach with at least 100,000 cubic yards of sand is headed to county commissioners, Mayor Carlos Gimenez wrote them in a memo this week.

Under work to begin in September, the sand would be hauled to the beach by truck in work that would take four to six months to complete.

Initial sand would be placed along the most eroded sections of the beach, “with options for additional segments if funds are available,” the mayor wrote.

The contract for the work is expected to be awarded at the end of July, the mayor said.

The most-recent beach erosion project involving the county government concluded in March in key spots on Miami Beach. The Village of Key Biscayne also recently completed its own beach renourishment.
