The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced Thursday that it will begin the Miami-Dade County Beach Renourishment Project this month.
The project will move a total of 357 cubic yards of sand to three Miami Beach areas in need, according to the Corps' Jacksonville District.
The first phase of the project will move sand to the area between 63rd and 69th streets from February through April.
The second phase, set to begin in May, will move sand from parts of South Beach to areas near 27th and 44th streets.
The projects were scheduled to avoid disturbing the busy tourism season, the district said.
The public is urged to use caution in these areas.
