St. Johns County coastal projects


Coastal Storm Risk Management >> 
The USACE contractor completed the construction phase of the Coastal Storm Risk Management project and has begun demobilizing equipment and personnel. Heavy equipment activity will continue along the entirety of the project area from Serenata Beach to the inlet for the remainder of the month. Please refrain from walking or sitting on the dune crest as this will damage the dune feature. Dune planting is scheduled to commence in March.
