Emergency Beach Erosion Control Project
Pinellas County is conducting an emergency shoreline restoration project to mitigate critical erosion caused by Hurricane Idalia. The project consists of constructing dunes. The active project area will move strategically along the coast, as County teams have triaged the damage and will work on the most critical areas first. Redington Beach is eligible for inclusion in the project. Beachfront property owners must complete and submit temporary easements provided by the County.
This project is separate from the federal beach nourishment project that is currently on hold with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
Sand is being trucked in from an authorized location, placed on the beach and shaped into dunes. The new dunes will also be planted with vegetation. Several other beaches between Clearwater and Pass-a-Grille are tentatively included in the project. A map and schedule will be posted here once finalized.
