Absecon Inlet is a busy place these days with two of coastal protection projects currently ongoing, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, said in its yesterday’s announcement.

“We are building a seawall along the inlet and rebuilding sections of the Atlantic City, New Jersey boardwalk. Also, the dredge RN Weeks can be seen in the inlet dredging and pumping sand onto the north shore of Atlantic City as part of our oceanfront project,” USACE said in its latest project update.

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.
