Vehicular beach access at Vilano Beach, Porpoise Point closed for sand placement project; officials urge pedestrian caution


Vehicular beach access to Porpoise Point and Vilano Beach is temporarily closed in order to allow the Army Corps of Engineers and the Florida Inland Navigation District to complete a sand placement project. The project is scheduled to be completed by June.

Because the project will involve heavy equipment and large pipes on Vilano Beach and at Porpoise Point, officials are urging pedestrians to use caution when visiting those beaches during the project. For more information, email
