Picture of the Day: Oakwood Beach, Before and After

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 (USACE).

The restoration of Oakwood Beach in Elsinboro was completed about three 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.
