The Port of San Diego will begin replenishing sand at Point Loma’s Kellogg Beach next week in an effort to protect the beach from natural erosion.

The work will start on or shortly after Tuesday, July 6, according to a news release. It is expected to be completed in two to three weeks.

About 2,200 cubic yards of natural sand will be placed on the beach between Kellogg and McCall streets. The Port of San Diego placed 2,000 cubic yards of sand on the beach in June 2020.

Along with protecting against erosion, replenishing the sand is intended to help maintain or improve the current slope of the beach into the water, according to the Port, a district covering 34 miles along San Diego Bay and spanning five cities.

Kellogg Beach is located on the eastern shore of Point Loma across from the southwestern tip of Shelter Island. Access to the beach will be limited during project work hours, primarily between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. The beach will be open in the evenings and on weekends per posted hours.

The project is part of the Port’s Major Maintenance Program, which is funded primarily via revenue the Port collects from its tenant businesses on and around San Diego Bay.
