The work is set to begin immediately to help repair massive beach erosion in the area.

Through collaboration and bipartisan partnership, the State and town of North Wildwood have determined an interim solution to address beach replenishment in North Wildwood,” the officials said in a joint statement.

The New Jersey Department of Transportation’s Office of Maritime Resources is currently working to design and authorize a North Wildwood Emergency Beach Nourishment Dredging project that will serve to protect the infrastructure, quality of life, and economy in North Wildwood until the Army Corps of Engineers and NJDEP are able to complete a long-term project.

The current plan will begin over the next few weeks and is expected to provide relief to the community over the next few months.
