Dean Hicks Reef, Lee County
Kelly Brothers was contracted by Lee County Board of County Commissioners to truck donated materials, transport offshore and deploy over 1,000 tons of massive concrete debris to the 150 acre Dean Hicks Artificial Reef. This was the 2nd project KBI has done for the deployment of materials in the creation of the Dean Hicks Reef. The reef site is located approximately 15 nautical miles from the Sanibel Lighthouse in 45’ of water. The concrete was transported to KBI’s Beach Yard in Fort Myers Beach then loaded on to our barge for strategic placement to in order to create an optimal environment to draw and shelter marine life.
