The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, has just released this amazing photo of the Absecon Inlet seawall and boardwalk construction project in Atlantic City, New Jersey. 

The Absecon Island project is one of several along the New Jersey coastline being funded by $1.2 billion appropriated by Congress to rebuild and strengthen the state’s beaches following Superstorm Sandy in October 2012.

This coastal scheme represents another section of New Jersey’s coast that will receive engineered beaches and dunes, part of the Christie Administration’s post-Sandy goal to provide maximum protection to the shore.
