Beach escarpment knockdown gets underway this week
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 Thursday, April 12.
Leveling of escarpments (see photo at left) is required annually prior to April 15 to enhance marine turtle nesting conditions.
Heavy equipment will be present on the beach during the day and will utilize lighting if work continues into the evening and nighttime hours.
The city asks that the public pay close attention for approaching equipment and use caution while enjoying the beach in areas where work is being performed.
