Free sand makes its way to Midtown Beach

Posted On: 02-17-2017

Midtown Beach will be receiving hundreds of truck loads of free sand over the next week.

Crews began work Wednesday on a small dune restoration project to place about 4,200 cubic yards of sand on a 1,300-foot stretch from Hammon Avenue to Via Marina, according to developer DDG.

The donated sand is being delivered by truck from an inland sand plant in association with a luxury oceanfront condominium development project at 3550 S. Ocean Blvd. in South Palm Beach. DDG is excavating sand to build the condos and has to mitigate that loss by placing sand somewhere else in the nearby area.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection identified Midtown as an acceptable area where the sand wouldn’t be “sacrificial.”

The project is scheduled to be completed by Feb. 24. Daily construction hours are between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Workers will drive dump trucks through an access point at Peruvian Avenue and use bulldozers to shape it into place.
