Col. David Caldwell of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, announced yesterday the completion of the Sea Gate Reach of the Coney Island Shore Protection Project.

The $28 million project will increase resiliency and reduce the risks coastal storms pose to residents and businesses on Coney Island.

It will also prevent sand erosion from the Coney Island Public Beach and surrounding beaches, which played a key role in helping to mitigate storm surge damage during Hurricane Sandy.

Col. Caldwell was joined by Sen. Charles Schumer, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, as well as New York State DEC and the City of New York.

“The Sea Gate Reach portion of this project not only marks the completion of this shore protection effort, it ensures that Coney Island Beach will be stronger and retain its sand for longer,” said Col. Caldwell.

The first phase of the project started over 20 years ago with widening and elevating of Coney Island beach from Corbin Place to West 37th Street.

Since then beach replenishment, groin work and other work has been done to ensure that Coney Island is ready for the next storm event.

USACE placed 70,000 cubic yards of sand at Sea Gate Beach in this last phase.
