Keansburg Beach Replenishment Project Moves Ahead (USA)

At a press conference recently held at the Waterfront Library in Keansburg, N.J., Rep. Frank Pallone announced progress on the Army Corps of Engineers’ Keansburg Beach Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction Project.

The replenishment effort, which is broken into four contracts, began in late 2013, with the first 1 million cubic yards of sand being pumped onto nearly 2.5 miles of the New Jersey shoreline to repair damage from Hurricane Sandy.

New York District Commander Col. Paul Owen spoke about project details and timelines to an audience including Borough of Keansburg Mayor Arthur Boden, local officials and area residents.

In partnership with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the Corps is restoring the Keansburg Beach Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction Project through two contracts: $36.9 million for beach, berm and dune restoration (Great Lakes Dock and Dredge Co., Oak Brook, Ill); and $3.4 million for levee and wing wall repairs (Di Irio Construction Corp., Rutherford, N.J.).
