Beginning this spring/summer, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will be conducting two phases of beach renourishment projects on Anna Maria Island.
The first phase, the Central Beach Project, will take place along the beaches between 78th Street North on Holmes Beach to approximately 5th Street South in Bradenton Beach. The second phase, the Coquina Beach Project, will take place at 5th Street South in Bradenton Beach and continue south to Longboat Key.
Beach construction on the beach began July 8, 2020 and will continue through mid-November 2020.
