Beach replenishment work is currently stalled in Seaside Park, thanks to a combination of a burst pipe on a dredge boat and some foul weather predicted over the next few days.
But we thought we’d take a look at the project’s progress thus far, and give you a peak into the future size of the borough’s beaches.
In the video attached to this article, you can see the stark difference between the short beach closest to the camera and how the replenished beach juts out in the background. All beaches will receive at least a 200 foot berm in the project, which will cover the length of the borough.
As the dune line is under construction, beach access points have yet to be constructed, but the height and breadth of the dune – in some place, just an expansion of the existing dune – can be seen clearly by beachgoers. All dunes will be about 22 feet high by the project’s completion.
The L Street Beach is currently closed as it is the present work site. The project is expected to last through late November in Seaside Park, though delays related to the burst pipe along with potentially rough weather could ultimately delay its length into the following month.
