Cleanup has begun on the Hollywood Beach hurricane debris removal project, contracted with Bergeron Land Development, Inc., which will be responsible for removing and redistributing tons of sand displaced by Hurricane Irma on the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk. The project will clean up the entire length of the Broadwalk wall and rid the walking and bike paths of this newly-created safety hazard.
The operation will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for approximately the next 3 weeks. This project includes the pre-authorization from the State and the Turtle Monitor providing pre-inspection of the areas in order to protect any sea turtle nests.
As the tractors and equipment move into each beach area, the area being cleared and leveled will be cordoned off and a Project Supervisor from Bergeron will be on site as a monitor. City Beach Maintenance Supervisor Salafrio and CRA Beach Maintenance Supervisor Tiru will also be monitoring the project activity. The length and parameter of this sand removal and redistribution project will be from the North at Sheridan Street South to the Quadomain Complexes at Magnolia Terrace, including the entire length of the Broadwalk Wall. Use of the Beach and Broadwalk should not be impacted except at the areas being worked on at any particular time.
This project will be submitted upon completion to FEMA for reimbursement, as clean up activity required as a result of the Hurricane Irma damage. This project is being coordinated with the CRA, Police, Parks & Recreation and Beach Safety/Fire Departments.
