Beach Replenishment Update: Beach Now Closed 40th to 42nd Street

first_imgA temporary fence on the beach just south of 40th Street marks the progress of the south end beach replenishment project in Ocean City, NJ.Check OCNJ Daily for updates and photos of the progress of work of the Ocean City beach replenishment project for 2015 in the south end of Ocean City between 36th and 59th Streets.The bulk of the work on Monday, April 20, was at 41st Street.DATE: Monday, April 19PROGRESS: As of Monday afternoon, access to the beach is blocked at the end of the 41st Street and 42nd Street dune crossovers, and a temporary fence crosses the beach just south of 40th Street. The bulk of the work appears to be taking place near 41st Street with bulldozers and excavators moving tall mounds of new sand across the beach. The feeder pipeline has now been extended from just south of 42nd Street to 41st Street. Work can be viewed from the top of the beach at all blocks.WHAT’S NEXT: The project will proceed northward to 36th Street over the next couple weeks. It appears as if two blocks of beach will be closed at any time as work migrates north. The Liberty Island, a “hopper dredge,” is shuttling back and forth between an area more than 2 miles off the coast of Strathmere (where it’s pumping sand from the ocean floor into its hold) to an area just off 42nd Street in Ocean City (where it’s pumping sand onto the beach through a feeder pipeline). After work is complete to 36th Street, the next phase of the project will be from 42nd Street south to 49th Street.READ MORE: Ocean City NJ Beach Replenishment 2015 Daily UpdateFOR DAILY UPDATES by E-MAIL: Sign up for freelast_img read more
