Picture of the Day: Broadkill Beach Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, has posted on its official facebook page this aerial photo that shows a completed section of beachfill construction at Broadkill Beach, Delaware, as part of the Delaware River Main Channel Deepening project.

The project involves dredging sand from the Delaware River to deepen the river for navigation purposes and placing on the beach to reduce future storm damages.

The deeper channel will provide for more efficient transportation of containerized, dry bulk (steel and slag) and liquid bulk (crude oil and petroleum products) cargo to and from the Delaware River ports, with estimated net annualized benefits of more than $13 million to the U.S. economy.
