- Business & Finance
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, said in their latest announcement that one section of the Absecon Inlet seawall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, is now complete while construction continues on the other section.
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.
