Keansburg Beach Replenishment Project Ready to Start (USA)

Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. and Colonel Paul Owen, Commander of the New York District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, announced that work will begin on the Keansburg beach replenishment project that will be completed to restore damage to the Jersey Shore caused by Superstorm Sandy.

The work to be done by the Army Corps will improve this project beyond damage from the devastating storm.

Work is set to begin on or around March 1, 2014.

The Army Corps of Engineers awarded the contract for this project to Great Lakes Dredge Dock, LLC, of Oak Brook, Illinois back in September 2013.

The project area will receive approximately 1.1 million cubic yards of new sand lost as a result of Hurricane Sandy. This project is part of the larger Keansburg Storm Damage Reduction Project, which includes a previously announced contract to repair Keansburg’s levees, remove debris, and fix a damaged wing wall.

Many residents and businesses in Keansburg have been continuously impacted by serious flooding, and during Sandy the community suffered damage unlike it had ever before,” said Congressman Pallone. “I’m pleased that the Army Corps is moving forward with this historic investment that will help to protect area homes and businesses from future flooding, as well as repair the destruction caused by Sandy. I have fought for this and other beach replenishment projects for years, because I know how important they are to protect some of our most fragile coastal infrastructure.

At the event, Congressman Pallone and Colonel Owen outlined the scope and timeline of this critical infrastructure work that will help protect the Jersey Shore from future storms.
