The initial project included removal of a derelict groin field and placement of beach fill along 16,390 feet (3.1 miles). The complete Lee County project area, from Boca Grande Pass to 17th Street, is listed as critically eroded shoreline by Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). 

The 2019 beach nourishment project, projected to be completed by the Army Corps May through July, will add sand from Banyan Street to 18th Street, and on the Gasparilla Island State Park segment surrounding Belcher Road from Seagrape Park south toward the Lighthouse.
