USACE Jacksonville Announces Contract Award for Rehabilitation of Brevard Co. Mid and South Reach Shore Protection Projects

JACKSONVILLE, FL — The Jacksonville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awards a $47.6 million contract to The Dutra Group of San Rafael, California, to execute a Flood Control and Coastal Emergencies (FCCE) rehabilitation of the Mid and South Reach segments of the Brevard County, Florida, federal shore protection projects.

The project will place approximately 1.125 million cubic yards of sand on critically eroded beaches extending 11.5 miles from the southern border of Patrick Space Force Base through Satellite Beach, Indian Harbour Beach, Indialantic, and ending in Melbourne Beach at Spessard Holland Beach Park.

Sand will be dredged from a Bureau of Ocean Energy Management approved offshore borrow site located approximately eight nautical miles offshore from Port Canaveral.

To comply with environmental requirements to protect sea turtle nesting habitat along the shore, the beach rehabilitation will be conducted in two phases, beginning with the Mid Reach segment in late November this year and extending through April 2024; and then again beginning in November 2024 with an estimated completion date in April 2025.

Brevard County is the non-federal sponsor for the Mid and South Reach Shore Protection Project. The FCCE rehabilitation is 100% federally funded to restore damages from Hurricanes Ian and Nicole.
