Representatives from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District and New York City announced the beginning of sand replenishment efforts at Rockaway Beach.
Crews are busy placing millions of cubic yards of sand as part of the Corps efforts to repair and restore the Rockaway coastline which was severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
This work is being funded through Public Law 113-2 (Sandy Bill) and is being executed via two separate contracts. It will involve the placement of more than 3.5 million cubic yards of sand stretching from Beach 19th Street to Beach 149th Street.
