The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, said in its latest announcement that their seawall along the Absecon Inlet section of Atlantic City, New Jersey, continues to progress.

The steel sheet pile seawall is fronted by multi-ton capstones, corestone and marine mattresses, USACE said.

The Absecon Island coastal scheme 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 work 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.
