New Jersey Beaches Get New Sand

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, awarded a $25.3 million contract to Dutra Dredging Company of San Rafael, Calif. to place approximately 1.5 million cubic yards of sand to restore New Jersey beaches from Belmar to Manasquan.

This program is part of an emergency shore protection project which will repair and restore previously constructed beach erosion control and storm damage reduction projects throughout the region affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The contract is the second of four for restoration of the entire Sea Bright to Manasquan project area, with an estimated 8 million cubic yards of sand to be placed to restore the entire project area.
