Jersey Shore Beaches Are in Great Shape Post-Sandy

Experts say the Jersey shore beaches are in their best shape in years heading into the second summer after Superstorm Sandy.

That’s due to a massive replenishment project after the enormous storm and some simple good luck: A series of brutal winter storms actually took it easy on the coastline.

Jon Miller of Stevens Institute of Technology and Stewart Farrell of Stockton College agree the beaches came through the winter in good shape, and the beach replenishment added further protection.

Most of the replenished beaches are 150 to 200 feet wide.

The work was designed to restore them to pre-Sandy shape.

Similar work will continue in Ocean and Cape May counties this fall and winter.
