The Army Corps and their contractor began work in the Brevard County South Reach project area on January 15th. The South Reach project area stretches from Flug Avenue Indialantic,
southward 3.8 miles to Spessard Holland Park. Work in the South Reach has now been complete, with only minor work remaining to restore project staging areas.
A separate emergency dune restoration project was completed in the South Beaches between Spessard Holland Park South and Sebastian Inlet State Park. Sand placement was completed in areas that suffered significant erosion in September 2020. Sea Oats were installed along most of the South Beaches dunes during the months of March and April. Work in the South Beaches is now complete with the exception of minor restoration at project staging areas.
