Heavy equipment on Venice beaches 4/12

Post Date:04/11/2019 1:16 PM

Advantage Construction Group will be conducting beach grading at the water line to level escarpments at the beach in Venice from the South Jetty to South Brohard Park starting at first light Friday, April 12.  

An escarpment is a steep slope or drop-off near the waterline from wave action. Knocking down these drop-offs will improve pedestrian safety for beach-goers and facilitate sea turtle nesting.

Heavy equipment will be present on the beach during the day Friday and will utilize lighting if work continues into the evening and nighttime hours.

The City of Venice asks that the public pay close attention for approaching equipment and use caution while enjoying the beach in areas where work is being performed.
