The trucks will reach the beach through the Colony property at 1620 Gulf of Mexico Drive. Approximately 40,000 cubic yards of sand will be added from the Islander Club Condominium, 2295 Gulf of Mexico Drive, southward to the north end of the Seaplace Condominiums, 2045 Gulf of Mexico Drive. The segment is scheduled for completion by mid-May. Photo: Members of the beach nourishment project team inspected the sand stockpile at a mine in Immokalee, Florida, in March.
