After storm delays, dredging begins at Gordon Pass

Published: Updated:

NAPLES BAY, Fla. – Workers started dredging Gordon Pass on Monday after delays from Tropical Storm Hermine.

The storm pushed back the delivery of equipment, which arrived to Naples Bay last week.

Boaters have said the pass is very dangerous at only three feet deep. The harbormaster says it should be at least 10 to 12 feet deep.

The sand pumped out of Gordon Pass will be placed onto Keewaydin Island to renourish the beach. The project will take four to six weeks.
