Abstract: Infrastructure along the St. Johns County shoreline is subject to damage from waves, erosion, and inundation caused by coastal storms. Developed areas, as well as portions of State Road A1A (SR A1A), the major evacuation route for the region, are vulnerable. This study investigates alternatives for a unified plan that addresses these vulnerabilities, as well as incidental opportunities for maintenance of environmental habitat and recreation for three reaches along the Atlantic shoreline of St. Johns County, Florida. This report is an interim response to the study authority. This single purpose Coastal Storm Risk Management (CSRM) study will focus on the erosion problems and potential storm damage susceptibility of structures along three reaches of the Atlantic Ocean shoreline in St. Johns County, Florida as follows: South Ponte Vedra Beach, Vilano Beach, and Summer Haven. The non-federal sponsor is St. Johns County, Florida, represented by the Board of County Commissioners. There is Federal interest in a Recommended Plan with a Benefit-to-Cost Ratio (BCR) of 1.3.
