The authorized St. Johns Coastal Storm Risk Management (CSRM) Project will place sand along 3 miles of shoreline with key features that include a 60-foot wide beach extension, replacement of the 2015 dune, and a maximum taper of 1,000 feet at the northern and southern ends of the berm. Construction of the project will result in a resilient and efficient plan that significantly reduces damages, better enables emergency equipment to get into a coastal region for post-storm recovery efforts, ensures that evacuated residents can return home sooner, and avoids the high costs of cleanup and rebuilding structures.  These features of the authorized plan will lead to a more resilient community better able to recover faster from coastal storms.
