Blind Pass Dredging

The process of keeping Blind Pass open continues. Beginning today, the Lee County Department of Natural Resources’ contractor will begin maintenance dredging along the inside of Blind Pass (north side of bridge). Beach surveys are underway and construction equipment began setting the dredge pipe this week. Approximately 40,000 cubic yards of sand will be removed from the inside of the pass. The dredged sand will be used to re-nourish portions of eroded beach south of Blind Pass. This pass just doesn’t want to stay open!
