Lavallette Beach Operations Set for mid-December

Beach replenishment operations in Lavallette (NJ) are set to begin December 19, the town officials announced yesterday, following the Council meeting.

This was confirmed by the Army Corps, Philadelphia District, which revealed plans for the Lavallette beach works.

According to the plans, the current construction estimate is mid December through late April 2019. Weeks Marine hopper dredges, the R.N. Weeks and B.E. Lindholm, will work in tandem to complete the project.

The plan is to make the pipe landing near Magee Avenue and first pump North, then flip and pump South.

Before the project could begin, the town officials will meet the representatives from the state, USACE and the contractor on December 11 to discuss final preparations for the work.

The Lavallette beach replenishment project is part of the 14 mile beachfill and dune construction project along the Barnegat Peninsula also known as “Northern Ocean County” project.

Overall, the Northern Ocean County project covers communities of Point Pleasant Beach, Bay Head, Mantoloking, Brick Township, Toms River Township, Lavallette, Seaside Heights, Seaside Park, and Berkeley Township.

More than 11 million cubic yards of sand will be dredged from approved borrow areas and pumped through a series of pipes onto the beaches of the municipalities. This will create a dune and berm system designed to reduce potential damages to infrastructure, businesses, and homes that can occur from coastal storm events.

For most of the project area, dunes will be built to an elevation of 22 feet. Beaches will be constructed from 100 feet to 300 feet wide and to an elevation of 8.5 feet.
