VIDEO: Oakwood Beach Construction

Reconstruction of a two-mile stretch of severely eroded shoreline along the Delaware River in Salem County has been completed, making it the second post-Superstorm Sandy beach project in New Jersey to be fully executed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The restoration of Oakwood Beach in Elsinboro was completed two weeks ago by the Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company, which was contracted by USACE for the project.

It is one of seven major coastal and flood projects statewide, conducted by USACE in coordination with the DEP, at a cost of more than $1 billion for overall coastal protection.

The $9.9 million project at Oakwood Beach, which is located about eight miles southwest of the city of Salem, included a 50-foot-wide berm at an elevation of about six feet.

Some 346,000 cubic yards of sand from a borrow area in the Delaware River was pumped onto the beach.
