Mantoloking Coastal Protection Work Progresses

Borough of Mantoloking has just released the latest update on their coastal protection scheme, saying that the beach from just a bit south of Herbert to the Mantoloking/Brick border has been replenished.

Weeks Marine has flipped and is now working it’s way north to complete the Base Bid at 1071 Ocean Avenue which should happen the earlier part of March if all goes well, said the Borough in its announcement.

The cutter suction dredger R.S. Weeks, that has been here since the job began in October, is leaving to be replaced by the R.N. Weeks which is a hopper dredger.

This dredging vessel operates more like a tanker allowing it to go further offshore to collect send and bring it to a point where it can be piped onshore.

Approximately 1,132,633 cubic yards of sand have been pumped onto the beach so far.

USACE’s Philadelphia District, is currently conducting beachfill operations in Mantoloking, Ocean City and Longport, New Jersey – part of the Manasquan Inlet to Barnegat Inlet coastal scheme.

These are three separate projects with the same purpose – reducing the risk of coastal storm damages, USACE said.
