It’s official: there are only a few blocks to go before Lavallette’s beaches are fully replenished – just in time for the 2019 beach season.

At Ortley Avenue, crews worked rapidly to pump sand from a boat offshore, collect it at the oceanfront and spread it across the beach berm. The dune line is also taking shape from south-to-north across town.

As of April 4, Ortley, White, Kerr, Bond and Guyer avenues were closed to public access. Two dredgers – the RN Weeks and Magdalen – are working simultaneously to pump sand ashore.

After the current area being replenished is complete, there will only be about four more blocks to go before the island-wide project is complete.

Following the completion of sand placement operations, additional work on dune crossovers and sand fencing is set to take place for a period of several weeks, officials said.
