Preparations Underway To Repair Seawall; Trees Temporarily Transplanted

In preparation to repair a seawall at West John Ringling Causeway Park, crews are temporarily transplanting several trees, including Washingtonian palms, sabal palms and crape myrtles. The transplants are necessary to create a temporary access point for heavy machinery and equipment. Under the guidance of a City arborist, each tree will be relocated nearby then moved back when the construction is completed.

The project is expected to be finished in early September.

Over the years, the seawall and sidewalk have eroded due to high surf. The $172,000 project is being funded through a WCIND (West Coast Inland Navigation District) grant.
