Crews are making good progress on the first phase of the truck haul operation to nourish beaches on central Longboat Key. As of April 12, more than 700 truckloads of sand have been delivered from the mine in Immokalee for placement on the beach south of the Islander Club, in the vicinity of the Aria and Villa di Lancia Condominiums. This represents about 24 percent of the sand that will be used in this area. The truck haul operates 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday, with sand hauling trucks traversing the beach in both directions, escorted by ATV for safety. Please pardon the interruption while we work to enhance the beach.
They are projected to be working on our beach in August/September.
