Atlantic City Coastal Project Makes Progress

The USACE’s Philadelphia District recently wrapped up demolition and began placing concrete piles as part of the seawall and boardwalk construction works at the northern end of Atlantic City, New Jersey. ‪

The works are part of the Absecon Inlet Coastal Storm Damage Reduction Structures project designed to provide critical protection during storm events.

Overall, the project will cost around $32.5 million and includes the construction of a large stone revetment backed by a steel sheet pile ‎bulkhead for 1,340 feet between Oriental and Atlantic Avenues, as well as a smaller wooden bulkhead fronted by a stone revetment for 400 feet between Madison and Melrose Avenues.

Approximately $9.3 million will go toward the boardwalk construction with another $3.2 million in options for Atlantic City.
