Barnegat Inlet North Jetty Repair to Start Soon (USA)

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has contracted with Agate Construction to repair the Barnegat Inlet North Jetty beginning on or about April 14 and possibly continuing through November.

Operations will occur during daylight hours and at night.

A crane barge and a rock barge will be spudded down for stabilization at the north jetty with barge lights illuminated.

The navigable channel in Barnegat Inlet is narrow due to shoaling on the south side and in the center.

Natural changes in the inlet typically cause the water to be deeper on the north side, near the damaged jetty.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ dredge Murden has been dredging the shoal during the month of March to widen the navigable area.
