Loch Arbour Beaches to Get New Sand

Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-6) yesterday announced the start of a federally funded beach replenishment project covering the area stretching from Philips Avenue in southern Deal to Loch Arbour.

Army Corps awarded the contract for the $38 million project to Manson Construction Company. The funding for this project is entirely federal and is part of the Sandy aid package that Congressman Pallone fought for in Congress.

Congressman Pallone will visit the working site, at the Allenhurst Beach Club, 1A Allen Ave., Allenhurst, NJ, on Friday, April 17, together with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, as well as state and local officials.

As New Jerseyans well know, the fight for Sandy aid has not been easy, but the start of this project is a rewarding milestone in our efforts,” said Congressman Pallone. “Beaches are a fundamental part of life here on the shore, both for residents and our tourist economy.”

The replenishment project will cover the placement of 1,400,000 cubic yards of sand for reconstruction of the shoreline from Deal to Loch Arbour. It also includes lengthening six existing stormwater outfalls, as well as modification of two existing groins.

A contract award for the second half of the overall project, which includes beach replenishment from Philips Ave in Deal north to Lake Takanasee in Elberon, will be awarded later this year.
