What’s being called the world’s largest beach fill project ever undertaken by the U.S Army Corps of Engineers is headed to Monmouth County this summer. Congressman Frank Pallone said the Army Corps unveiled the details of its post-Sandy replenishment and flood control projects for Keansburg as well as beaches from Sea Bright to Manasquan.

In a press release, Pallone and Colonel Owen described the details of plans that will cover a majority of the beaches from Sea Bright to Manasquan, which is the largest beach nourishment project ever undertaken by the Army Corps of Engineers and the world’s biggest beach-fill project, in terms of sand volume.

A contract for the beach replenishment project is expected to be awarded on May 7th with the work immediately starting in Keansburg.  Col. Paul Owen, the Army Corps’ New York District Commander says in Keansburg, beaches, levees and berms that sustained storm damage will be restored, taking approximately 180 days.

A contract for the flood mitigation work will follow at the end of May to repair a pump station, floodwall and closure gates in Keansburg that sustained damage since their construction over four decades ago will be repaired beginning in June and take about 90 days.

Pallone says the Sandy Hook to Barnegat Inlet beach replenishment work will likely begin during the summer and be completed by the beginning of next year.
