Picture of the Day: Rockaway Beach Replenishment (USA)
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, is placing roughly 3.5 million cubic yards of sand along Rockaway Beach from Beach 19th to Beach 149th to replace sand lost during Hurricane Sandy.
This work will restore the beach to its design profile – making it better than it was before Sandy’s impact. The work is being done through two contracts totaling $36.4 million.
