Exciting news for the City of Dania Beach! The US Army Corp. of Engineers has begun on-site preparation/setup activities and coordination for the Shore Preservation Project that will add substantial amounts of new, fresh beach sand to the beach. This will not only widen this popular stretch of beachfront but also protect the sand dune, parking lot and other facilities to the dune’s west from ocean surges during periods of storm-strength winds. Sand augmentation work is
scheduled to begin on or around March 13th and continue until roughly the end of April.
The work will begin on the southern end of the beach and gradually move northwards toward the pier. As the work progresses and the sand nourishing operation expands north, more sections of the beach will be closed, limiting its access during weekdays. There will typically be no work on the project on weekends, and the beachfront will be accessible on those two days. This significant improvement to Dania Beach’s “gem”, benefiting the many residents and visitors who enjoy not only the surf and sand but also our current and expanding amenities, including restaurants and the popular pier, will surely be received with great enthusiasm by all!!
