Milestone for Monmouth Project

Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. announced yesterday the completion of the first phase of the Port Monmouth Hurricane and Storm Damage Reduction Project.

This $18 million project, aimed to reduce the risks that coastal storms pose to the Port Monmouth area, is federally funded through the Sandy relief package.

Phase One of the project included dune restoration, beach replenishment, groin work, extension of the fishing pier, and construction of protective dunes. Pallone highlighted the fact that the project will address major flood prevention to protect the low-lying residential and commercial areas in the Port Monmouth section of Middletown Township.

The project’s second phase will include constructing a system of levees, a floodwall, a tide gate, road closure structures, road regarding and pump stations. The entire $105 million project will be funded by the Sandy relief package and will offer significant protection to the area, which has suffered frequent flooding, erosion and damage from rain and coastal storms in recent years.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers expects to begin awarding contracts for the second phase in May 2016 so that construction for the full project could be completed by 2019.
