The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project in Keansburg is part of a massive beach restoration effort going on along most of the state’s 127-mile coastline.

The work is completely federally funded, and designed to restore damaged beaches to a better condition than they were in before the October 2012 storm.

In Monmouth County, work is underway along much of the coast between Sandy Hook and the Manasquan Inlet. Other beach repair work has recently been completed or is planned for later this year in Ocean, Atlantic and Cape May counties.

Many oceanfront communities were devastated by the storm, but bayfront towns like Keansburg also suffered severe damage.
