Project Description

Located in Lee County the New Pass Inlet is an access point between the Gulf of Mexico and Estero Bay. Situated between Big Hickory Island and Black Island with destinations such as Lover’s Key/Carl E. Johnson State Park and Lee County Parks and Recreation’s dog Beach, the area is accessed and well traversed by land and water. This project aims to restore the inlet and nearby waters to navigable depths and provide suitable sand for local beach nourishment.
