Senator Mikulski Supports Ocean City Coastal Projects

U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski yesterday continued her Maryland Jobs Tour on the Eastern Shore, joining Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan to inspect repairs to Ocean City’s Fishing Pier and beach sand dunes.

Investments in Ocean City’s coastal infrastructure are critical to Maryland’s tourism economy.

“In Ocean City, I’ve seen first-hand the impact that public investments in our coastal infrastructure have had in rebuilding and sustaining Maryland’s tourism economy,” Senator Mikulski said.

“According to estimates from the Corps, beach replenishment has protected Ocean City from more than $900 in damages, and saved Ocean City from Superstorm Sandy. I will never stop fighting so that the people of Maryland have a government on their side, supporting jobs today and jobs tomorrow.”

As Maryland and the nation grapple with severe weather events, including Super Storm Sandy, beach replenishment programs protect jobs along with billions of dollars in public and private infrastructure.

Beach renourishment along the Atlantic Coast in Ocean City provides hurricane, erosion and coastal flooding protection for coastal communities.

From 1991 to 2016, it has prevented over $900 million in damages to businesses and homes.
