Siesta Key, Turtle Beach Re-nourishment

January 4, 2007

Turtle Beach Re-nourishmentRe-nourishment of Turtle Beach on the south end of Siesta Key has begun.  The multi-million dollar project which is in part funded by the tourist tax collections will place nearly 2 million cubic yards of beach sand along 2 miles of beach.   When completed Turtle beach will have gained roughly 150 feet of beach.  The beaches on the south end of the Key are currently about 4o feet wide and in some areas, far less.  The project will stretch from the south end of the Sanderling Club southward to the end of Blind Pass Road.  Click here to view a photo gallery of the work in progress.
