The Town's contractor, Weeks Marine Incorporated restarted beach renourishment activities in South Forest Beach on August 21, 2016. Currently the active construction zone is located between Beach Marker 55 and 57A, south of the Coligny Beach Park access. In coming weeks, work is expected to advance to the north adjacent to and then beyond Coligny, North Forest Beach and Shipyard.  Work with this segment will proceed as far north as near the Windsor Court South development (adjacent southern Palmetto Dunes).  Construction of the south central oceanfront segment between South Forest Beach and southern Palmetto Dunes is expected to take approximately 30 days to complete. The Town estimates that the active construction zone will be located adjacent North Forest Beach during the Labor Day Holiday weekend/week. The final segment between Singleton Beach and southern Palmetto Dunes is scheduled for completion between mid-September and mid-October.
