The Destin beach restoration project is open again after the death of a sea turtle forced it to temporarily shut down.
Project officials say it reopened Saturday morning after the U.S. Corps of Engineers visited and gave the go-ahead to resume.
The project closed last week when the turtle was killed during dredging.
A loggerhead sea turtle was killed last month, but the project was able to continue after 24 hours.
Despite delays, the project is expected to be completed by June 1 in Walton County and by July 1 in Destin.
The restoration project will add 80 to 100 feet of width to about five miles of eroded beach in Walton County and to over two miles in Destin.
