NJDOT Plans to Dredge Five Forked River Channels

New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials yesterday announced a project to dredge five State navigation channels in the Forked River area in Ocean County.

The work is part of a $2.5 million project to dredge the Forked River and Barnegat Bay Channels.

It is necessary to ensure safe navigation and to maintain the Forked River, Forked River Middle Branch and Spur, the South Spur, and the channel known as the “Elks” Channel in a state of good repair, NJODT said.

In preparation for the dredging, NJDOT’s contractor, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company, LLC, is working during daylight hours, seven days a week to place pipeline in the channels, which will be both submerged and floating.

The pipeline will be used to pump the dredged material to the Oyster Creek Confined Disposal Facility.

Dredging operations are expected to begin in early- to mid-August and continue 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week through the end of September.

Upon completion of the Forked River channels, work will move to the Barnegat Bay Channels project.
