first_imgThe beach at 59th Street in Ocean City, NJ, on Monday (Feb. 9), about three months before the scheduled start of a new beachfill project.The City of Ocean City on Friday launched a new website page for regular updates on a massive project to bring 1.6 million cubic yards of new sand to Ocean City beaches between 36th and 59th streets from May to August.The work is part of a $57 million job that also includes beaches in Strathmere and Sea Isle City. The federal government is funding the entire project in an effort to restore eroded beaches and dunes throughout the region in the wake of 2012’s Superstorm Sandy.Because the federal Army Corps of Engineers is balancing so much work, the Ocean City project will stretch into the heart of the traditional summer tourist season, and Mayor Jay Gillian’s administration has vowed to communicate as much as possible about the project and the schedule as it develops.___________See and bookmark the Beach Replenishment Project (South) page: first information release includes a fact sheet listing details on the project, the contractor, the dredge and borrow area, and the schedule.The beach at 36th Street will mark the northern terminus of the project area in Ocean City, NJ.It also includes a “frequently asked questions” (FAQ) section answering questions such as:Will the beach be closed for the project?Where will the project begin and how will it proceed?When will my beach be closed?Why is this work being done during the summer season?What will Ocean City do to minimize the inconvenience for residents and guests?Continue to follow OCNJ Daily for updates and images before, during and after the project.See also:Beach to Close 1,000 Feet at a Time for Summer Dredging in Ocean City50 Years of Sand on the Way to Ocean City’s South Endlast_img read more
