Picture of the Day: Sea Gate Project

Work is underway on the long-awaited Army Corps of Engineers project to construct T-groins and place sand in the community of Sea Gate west of the West 37th Street Groin in Coney Island.

The project will be a benefit to the larger Coney Island Coastal Storm Risk Management Project and will also include beach restoration with the placement of roughly 125,000 cubic yards of sand.

This scheme is 100 percent federally funded through the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013, also commonly referred to as the Sandy Relief Bill.
