Beach Regrade Project Update

The beach regrade is underway which will help eliminate the pooling and ponding created during the rainy season. This will regrade about a mile of the beach and will be done in 1,500 foot sections to allow for public access to the beach at all times.

According to Mary Nelson, Marco’s Turtle Lady, she is hoping that there will be less flooded nests with the elevation created by the regrade. The project is expected to be finished by the start of the sea turtle season, which is April 15.
