The Army Corps of Engineers project will restore beaches in Keansburg to conditions better than they were prior to Sandy.  The work is being made possible by the Sandy aid package passed by Congress.  The contractor will pump 1.1 million cubic yards of new sand onto the beaches.

“Many residents and businesses in Keansburg have been continuously impacted by serious flooding, and during Sandy the community suffered damage unlike it had every before,” said Congressman Frank Pallone.  “I’m pleased that the Army Corps is moving forward with this historic investment that will help to protect area homes and businesses from future flooding, as well as repair the destruction caused by Sandy.  I have fought for this and other beach replenishment projects for years, because I know how important they are to protect some of our most fragile coastal infrastructure.”

The new contract is part of the larger Keansburg Storm Damage Reduction Project, which includes a previously announced contract to repair Keansburg’s levees, remove debris and fix a damaged wing wall.
