Keys infrastructure damaged by Hurricane Irma’s wrath continues to see repairs. Road crews continue to repair embankment washouts and shoulder pavement at Sea Oats Beach on Lower Matecumbe Key — an area that was washed out by the storm. It’s part of a larger Hurricane Irma repair project by the Florida Department of Transportation, estimated at $6 million, to repair various embankments from MM 33 to MM 79 in Monroe County.  The work started last August. Crews have also been working to repair the shoreline at the Fills. All work is expected to be complete by fall 2021.
