Sanibel Island and Captiva Island are marking the days until Blind Pass is officially opened.  The current schedule is for the pass to be open July 25!.  On September 25th there will be a ribbon cutting to mark this historic event.  Be sure to mark your calendar!

 

 

                        Opening of Blind Pass Draws Near
        Blind Pass Restoration project engineers and contractors are hoping for calm weather and seas as they complete interior dredging of the pass and move dredge "Nate" into the Gulf of Mexico. Only one of the original four sheet pile walls remains in place parallel to the gulf coast. Dredging near the gulf is normally more difficult than interior dredging due to the coarser sand. But gulf waves make it impossible to use the small dredge. To take advantage of days when weather cooperates, work may continue throughout the evenings.
 
        Completion of the project is expected in July. (Fingers crossed.)  Please join Lee County, the City of Sanibel and the CEPD for a commemorative ribbon cutting on Friday, September 25 at 10:00am.  Preparations for a special Captiva celebration are underway.  As we reunite for the season we will hold a grand family event including a small boat flotilla, food and fun.  Get your boats ready!
