New artificial reef created off Jacksonville coast

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Nine ton blocks deposited Friday into the waters offshore of Ponte Vedra Beach will soon be home to thousands of marine fish.

The project will require several more trips and materials — like culverts, buoy moorings and precast concrete — before it’s complete, but it could be done by September.
