Work to restore the marshes at Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge is making progress.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, is dredging more than one million cubic yards of sand from the Delaware Bay and using it to build a dune and berm in the area.

The dune and restored beach area will be planted with beach grasses and shrubs to hold the sand in place.

Work is expected to be complete by April 2016.
