Here is what I know in nutshell...
Indian River County is starting a beach restoration project that should start Feb 9th and will go no longer then May 1st (turtle nesting season). This is different then most beach restorations in that they will be trucking sand from inland instead of pumping it from the ocean floor. From the article in the local paper (TCPalm) there will be 30 trucks per hour crossing the Wabasso Bridge (which ends right next to DBVR). They are planning to work on a 6.6 mile stretch of beach, north and south of DVBR, and had expected it to take 90-120 days to complete. DVBR has stated that the beach will be closed for 4-6 weeks and would be open on the weekends. One of the 5(?) access points will be Wabasso Beach which is next door to DBVR.
