Update on Shoreline Protection Project


The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) contractor, H&L Contracting, will be commencing work in the City of Long Beach on Friday, March 17, 2017. The contractor plans to have a small crew of workers and delivery vehicles transporting and installing sand fencing along the approximate 2.5 mile stretch of work area as part of their beach construction access zone. Beach access will be provided at every street end, provided it is safe, except immediately adjacent to the staging areas. The fencing is expected to take a few days to setup and is a prelude to the setup of material staging areas on each end of the work area for construction of the 15 groin rehabilitations. Because of limited access near the boardwalk, the contractor will be using both New York Ave, and Neptune Blvd to access the beach. The contractor anticipates work will begin shortly on groins in the vicinity of Edwards Blvd and Riverside Blvd. For any additional questions or concerns, please call the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation at 518-402-8147.
