Ocean City Replenishment Resumes

The Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company’s dredging vessel Liberty Island is up and running again, and work has resumed on the southern end beach replenishment project in Ocean City, NJ.

The dredger had been undergoing repairs since Saturday, when work came to a halt. The project resumed yesterday at 44th Street.

According to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers spokesman Ed Voigt, no impact on the overall timeline is expected.

Ocean City will receive approximately 1.6 million cubic yards of sand on approximately 2.6 miles of beach between 36th and 59th Streets.

The project is being overseen by the United States Army Corps of Engineers in partnership with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and is 100 % federally funded.

A majority of the work is expected to be wrapped up by the middle of July.
