The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers yesterday announced the official completion of construction on the Long Beach Coastal Storm Risk Reduction Project.

The $130 million project was performed in two phases over three years that included construction of four new groins and the rehabilitation of 18 existing ones, as well as installing 284,000 tons of rock.

USACE also used 3.2 million cubic yards of sand to widen the beach and reinforce sand dunes, which play a crucial role in flood risk reduction, expanding the beach approximately 150 feet from Long Beach to Point Lookout.

This is a great day for the citizens of Long Beach, Lido Beach and Point Lookout, and represents the culmination of hard work and sacrifice over multiple years,” said New York District Commander Col. Thomas D. Asbery. “The residents of this community are now safer from the impacts of violent storms and coastal flooding.”

The projected was completely funded by the federal government.

According to USACE, crews will continue to perform dune crossover and planting work in Long Beach, which is expected to be completed by this fall.
