Below is a list of active Capital Improvement Projects taking place in the City of Sunny Isles Beach.
Beach Sand Renourishment Project
Location: Northern City limit (Terracina Avenue) to the South End of the Millennium Condominium Building / North and South side of Newport Pier, and points in between.
Description: The Beach Sand Renourishment Project will add approximately 200,000 cubic yards of sand to eroding areas of our beach. This is a Federal and private project led by the Army Corps of Engineers in partnership with Miami-Dade County, the City of Sunny Isles Beach, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the private sector.
The Federal part of this project will add approximately 140,000 cubic yards of sand to our beach. In addition, approximately 60,000 cubic yards of sand will be added funded by private development.
The project will span from the northern City limit (Terracina Avenue) to the south end of the Millennium Condominium building. Additional sand will also be placed at critical areas just north and south of the historic Newport Fishing Pier. The privately funded sand will be placed in areas in between.
Pedestrian Emergency Bridge
Location: North Bay Road at 174th Street & 172nd Street
Description: The Pedestrian Emergency Bridge will connect 174th Street to 172nd Street on the west side of Sunny Isles Beach. The purpose of this bridge is to enhance pedestrian mobility, including walking and biking and to provide access for emergency vehicles if necessary.
Utility Line Undergrounding
Location: Collins Avenue Corridor, Other Areas
Description: City-wide undergrounding of FPL and other overhead utility lines and equipment, installation of decorative street lighting and the removal of utility poles. The undergrounding of overhead utility lines on FPL poles will minimize power outages due to extreme windstorm and hurricane conditions and improve the aesthetics of the City. Most of the existing poles and streetlights do not conform to the city’s streetscape plan.
