New Jersey Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. has announced that the Army Corps of Engineers beach replenishment projects in Long Branch, Sea Bright, and Monmouth Beach will begin in December.

As a result of Congressman Pallone’s advocacy, the beach replenishment works will restore more than 1.3 million cubic yards of sand to beaches that suffer from erosion caused by tidal activity and storms.

The federal investment in the project is $24.5 million, which is 65% of the total cost. A combination of state and local funds will make up the remaining cost.

“This replenishment project is critical to our beaches and communities along the Jersey Shore,” Congressman Pallone said. “Coastal restoration projects like beach replenishment ensure our beautiful beaches will remain safe and enjoyable for residents and tourists for years to come.”

In preparation for this project, Pallone worked with the Army Corps and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to develop a plan to allow for timely distribution of sand along the three towns.

The Army Corps plans to move equipment and materials to three staging sites in November and begin pumping sand in December in Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach.

The work in Long Branch is expected to begin in February.

“Sand will be placed in Long Branch from West End Beach south to Sycamore Avenue in Elberon. In Monmouth Beach, sand will be placed from the Monmouth Beach Bathing Pavilion near Valentine Street north to Cottage Road. Sand will be placed in Sea Bright from the area near Island View Way north to Tradewinds Lane,” according to Pallone’s official announcement.

The Corps has identified future replenishment in Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach between the areas in the current project and to the north of Tradewinds Lane. The Corps has also identified the area between Madison Avenue north of Pier Village to Seven Presidents Park for future replenishment.
