Manasquan River Dredging Set for July

The Ocean County contractors are about to begin a multi-million dollar dredging project in the Manasquan River.

The state officials confirmed that the Manasquan River dredging project will start within next couple of weeks.

The project, located on the Atlantic Coast at the boundary between Monmouth and Ocean Counties, New Jersey, will provide for a 14 feet deep and 250 feet wide channel, protected by jetties and bulkheads.

According to the New Jersey Department of Transportation, the scheme includes the Lower Manasquan, Wills Hole, Wills Hole West, Kings Bridge, and Crabtown Creek in Brielle, Manasquan, Point Pleasant, and Point Pleasant Beach.

During the works around 100,000 cubic yards of sand will be taken from the area and placed to the confined disposal facility (CDF) located between the Wills Hole Thoroughfare and the Manasquan River.

The main aim of the Manasquan River dredging project is to provide a safe, reliable navigation channel for commercial, recreational and U.S. Coast Guard vessels. According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, during the summer months, more than 500 vessels pass through the channel per day.
