Picture of the Day: Flood Risk Reduction Project in Port Monmouth

Flood Risk Reduction Project in Port Monmouth

For nearly a year, the Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, has been repairing damage from Hurricane Sandy to previously-engineered beaches in New York and New Jersey.

Now, restoration has expanded to a new area where the Corps of Engineers hasn’t previously worked ─ Port Monmouth, N.J.

In June 2014, the District began the first phase of an extensive $110 million hurricane and storm damage risk reduction project along the shores of Raritan and Sandy Hook Bay in Port Monmouth, providing coastal-storm risk reduction for low-lying residential and commercial structures.
