USACE’s Major General Donald Jackson toured the $32.5 million Absecon Inlet seawall project in Atlantic City, NJ, last week.

The Absecon Inlet Coastal Storm Damage Reduction Structures scheme includes the construction of a large stone revetment backed by a steel sheet pile ‎bulkhead for 1,340 feet between Oriental and Atlantic Avenues.

The contract for the USACE-funded seawall construction was awarded to Hackensack-based J. Fletcher Creamer & Son.

This project will provide critical protection for the northern end of Atlantic City, which was battered by Superstorm Sandy and many other storm events that preceded it.
