Beachfill work under way in Sea Isle City

Beachfill work under way in Sea Isle City

A dredge began pumping sand Thursday in Sea Isle City as part of a 700,000-cubic-yard beach-replenishment project in the city's southern end.

The beachfill, which started near 94th Street, will move north as work progresses, Mayor Leonard Desiderio said. The project area stretches from 94th Street to 73rd Street.

Beaches in the work areas will be temporarily blocked off. Beachfills in Sea Isle City and Avalon are scheduled to conclude before July 1. The two municipalities are sharing the cost of the $10.4 million project.

The dredge also is in place to provide 500,000 cubic yards of fresh sand in Avalon but has not begun pumping.
