Northern Ocean County fixes Hurricane Sandy erosion
Northern Ocean County, located along New Jersey’s Atlantic Coast, will receive $128 million to replenish beaches and dunes that were struck by Hurricane Sandy in 1992. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, who is working with a Department of Environmental Protection and a marine construction company, awarded a $128 million contract for the first phase of the project.
There are 14-miles remaining of the 127-miles that have engineered beaches and dunes. The federal government will pay for 65 percent of the project under the 2013 Disaster Relief Appropriations Act and New Jersey will pay for 35 percent of the project from the state’s Shore Protection Fund.
