Longboat Pass Flood Shoal Sand Traps

and Beach Fill Project (2006-2014)

Longboat Pass is located in Manatee County, Florida. H&M completed a regional modeling and inlet management update for Longboat Pass in 2008. The study also included the potential use of the flood shoal as a renewable source of sand through the creation of sand traps. Subsequently, two sand traps were permitted and dredged, resulting in approximately 100,000 CY of beach compatible material. This project was implemented and all the material dredged was placed on a highly eroded section of Longboat Key south of the Pass. The project was completed in July 2014 and will be monitored. Construction funding was provided by WCIND and the Town of Longboat Key.
