The project consists of trucking sand to beaches previously designated by the state as critically eroded and actively managed by Lee County to protect public infrastructure currently at risk from hurricane impacts. Currently permitted locations include Lovers Key where a breach threatens the access bridge, and south of Blind Pass where the severely eroded beach threatens the Sanibel Captiva Road evacuation route.
