The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Jacksonville District awarded a $37,348,064 construction contract for the Broward County Segment III beach renourishment project to Continental Heavy Civil Corporation on Feb. 23.
“Fort Lauderdale beach has been a place of enjoyment for locals and visitors from all over the world. We are proud to know it will be restored to its past beauty,” said Tiphanie Mattis, Project Manager.
Broward County Segment III Shore Protection Project includes placing sand on the beaches of Dr. Von D. Mitzel-Eula Johnson State Park, Dania Beach, Hollywood and Hallandale, and is 100 percent federally funded via the Flood Control and Coastal Emergency Act (Public Law 84-99) and the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 (Public Law 115-123). This renourishment includes the placement of approximately 840,000 cubic yards of beach-quality sand from upland sand mine(s) and truck hauled to the beach. Dunes and coastal vegetation will also be constructed within the limits of the Park as a part of this construction contract.
The project work will renourish approximately 7 miles of critically eroded shoreline immediately south of Port Everglades Inlet in Segment III along two placement areas. A 1.5 mile long segment within the Mitzel-Eula Johnson State Park and a 5.8 mile long segment within the cities of Dania, Hollywood, and Hallandale.
