Norfolk Dredging Company (NDC) will be moving heavy equipment for the next three to four days and mobilizing the dredge Pullen to Longboat Pass to dredge approximately 210,000 cubic yards of sand to be placed on the shoreline in two areas (Segment 7 on the map) from North Shore Road to just South of Broadway Street and along the beach between 6700 to 6391 Gulf of Mexico Drive, weather permitting. Work will begin on Friday, September 23, 2016. Dredging occurs 24 hours a day, seven days a week to complete the work as soon as possible.
The emergency South End truck haul begins on Monday, September 26 with placement of approximately 33,000 cubic yards of Immokalee Mine sand from Central Florida. Trucks will be entering from the South end of the Key onto Longboat Club Road. It is expected the work will take fifteen working days to complete the placement of sand from L’Ambiance to the Resort at Longboat Key Club. Truck hauling and sand placement will occur Monday through Saturday, 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. until completion.
