Feds widening NJ beaches to pre-Sandy condition
BELMAR, N.J. - February 1, 2014 (WPVI) -- Beach replenishment is coming soon to the first Jersey shore community to rebuild its boardwalk after Superstorm Sandy.
It's part of a near-statewide blitz to widen and elevate beaches to the shape they were in before the killer storm hit.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will soon begin work in Belmar and Spring Lake. Both lost their heavily used boardwalks in the storm.
Belmar was the first in the state to rebuild after the storm, and Spring Lake was not far behind.
Similar work was done in parts of Ocean and Atlantic counties last year, and scheduled jobs for 2014 include other parts of Ocean and Cape May counties.
