VIDEO: Ocean City Beach Renourishment (USA)
Army Corps of Engineers contractors finished work recently on a beach replenishment project in Ocean City that stretched about 2.3 miles, from Seaspray Road to 14th Street.
The project was part of a regularly scheduled series of beach maintenance projects for north-end and downtown beaches.
A 309-foot dredge operated by the Great Lake Dredge and Dock Company of Oak Brook, Ill., sits about a half-mile off Surf Road beach in Ocean City near the mouth of Great Egg Harbor Inlet and was the source for the more than 1.8 million cubic yards of sand that was pumped onto Ocean City beaches.
