Broward County to replenish sand to beaches through renourishment project

South Florida is known around the world for its beautiful beaches.

“That’s the reason we came here, from Columbus in the middle of the winter. It’s snowing in Ohio right now,” said Ohio tourist Alex Elofir.

Along with normal wear and tear, rare November and December storms left our beaches in rough shape in some places due to erosion.

That was right around the time a planned beach renourishment project was getting underway – replenishing sand from Hallandale Beach to Port Everglades.

“We’re doing this project with the Army Corps of Engineers to bring the beach back to what it once was,” said Jacob Rice. He is the program manager from Broward County.
