This project is to provide for the design and construction of improved beach access to Sandbridge beach, while minimizing impact to natural areas and dunes, as recommended in the Council-adopted 2002 Beach Management Plan. This project will also be used to manage wind-blown sand in the Sandbridge right-of-ways and recycle that sand back to the beach.
This project first appeared in the FY 2006-07 CIP. The project has been revised to reflect the installation of 2-3 accesses per year and funding to manage windblown sand. Engineering design work will be accomplished under the General Coastal Engineering Services Annual Services Contract.
The first phase of construction was completed in Spring 2011 at Tuna Lane. The second phase of construction is scheduled to begin late Fall 2011 which will include improvements to the beach access a Pike Lane and to one beach access at the Market Area. Future beach access improvement locations will be coordinated with the Sandbridge Civic League.
