The 2021 Captiva Island Beach Renourishment project commencement is currently being coordinated with the resource agencies and contractor, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock. Following recent and ongoing planning discussions, construction is now projected to start no earlier than August 26, 2021 pending all notice to proceed approvals from the agencies. Barring any unforeseen delays, it is estimated to take approximately 35 days to place the contracted 600,000 cubic yards once construction is underway; if additional sand is authorized by the CEPD, the number of construction days will be adjusted accordingly. Construction of the beach will first move south near 16141 Captiva Drive to Turner Beach, and then north toward Chapin Lane. Once the southern portion of the island is completed, construction operations will move north to fill the remainder of the island in a similar manner.
