Projects & Advisories

Crescent Beach Vehicular Access Prohibited – The access ramp at Fort Matanzas was damaged during Hurricane Matthew, eliminating the final access point for vehicles to leave the beach prior to the national park boundary. As a result, vehicular access to the beach between Crescent Beach and Fort Matanzas is currently prohibited. In addition, two-way traffic is not possible due to beach erosion and abnormally high tides. Staff will continue to evaluate beach and tide conditions daily and will implement temporary two way traffic when beach conditions allow safe passage. Crescent Beach Vehicular Access Prohibited

Vilano Boat Ramp Floating Dock Repaired and Open to the Public –  Temporary repairs are complete and boaters now have safe and improved access to their vessels. The dock will be permanently repaired and open in February 2019. St. Johns County thanks residents and visitors for their patience during the improvements and repairs. Please call 904.209.0382 or email tmeyer@sjcfl.us for additional information.

South Ponte Vedra and Vilano Beaches Dune Restoration Project –  The Board of County Commissioners created the Ponte Vedra and Vilano Beaches Dune and Beach Restoration Municipal Service Taxing Unit (MSTU) on December 19, 2017. The purpose of the MSTU is to fund a portion of a proposed one-time project to place an average of 20 cubic yards of sand per linear foot between 2539 South Ponte Vedra Boulevard and 3244 Coastal Highway. The Commission further refined the project on February 6, 2018, and directed staff to survey affected oceanfront property owners to determine support for the project. Survey results of the South Ponte Vedra and Vilano Beaches Dune Restoration Project are available below, and are anticipated to be presented to the Board for consideration in July. Surveys were mailed March 21, 2018 to the 386 affected property owners. Responses were received from 77.8% of the properties. Of the responses received within the 60-day timeframe, 55.9% Agree and 44.1% Disagree that the Board of County Commissioners should implement the project and levy the 8.25 mils necessary to fund a portion of the project cost.
