Navarre Beach Renourishment Update 

Beach restoration crews are filling the fourth and final segment of the Navarre Beach renourishment project. More than 900,000 cubic yards of sand have been placed on Navarre Beach since April 29. Turtle trawlers have safely relocated 161 turtles to a location outside of the borrow area. The project is moving according to schedule and the active work zone has now transitioned to just east of Beach Access #11.
Over the next week, the contractor will continue filling segment four and, at the current pace, will reach the western end of the project within two and a half weeks. Dune planting is scheduled to begin in the eastern end of the project. Beach access #12 will remain closed for use as a staging area. See the online map for more information.
Monitoring for sea turtles as well as shorebird/seabird nesting and breeding will continue throughout the renourishment process.
