Jetty - Collier County

Doctors Pass, Collier County, FL

KBI was contracted to rehabilitate and reconstruct the North Jetty of Doctor’s Pass. The project consisted of barging in and placing over 3,850 tons of Armor Stone. The 160’ of the landward side of the jetty was widened by 5’ and the seaward-most 240’ of existing jetty was covered to increase the crest height approximately + 6 feet. The project was time sensitive due to turtle nesting season; KBI successfully completed the work within the 60 day timeframe required by Collier County.

What our Clients are Saying

Kelly Brothers was commissioned to construct a meandering 1,200 lineal foot elevated boardwalk, through our environmentally sensitive wetland. Our goal was to construct an elevated boardwalk and shell paths through this coastal habitat while respecting the mangrove forest, salt marsh, as well as the oak hammock uplands. The chorography technique Kelly Brothers created was truly impressive. As a result, there was no disturbance or destruction to any part of the surrounding area.
