A federal project to replenish beaches and restore Hurricane Sandy-damaged dunes on Long Beach Island will begin soon.  The Army Corps of Engineers recently awarded a $30.6 million contract to the Illinois-based Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co. to take on the project, which will include placing 3 million cubic yards of sand in Harvey Cedars, Surf City and the Brant Beach section of Long Beach Township  .Also, the work includes the replacement of dune crossovers, sand fencing and the replanting of dune grasses.
The Long Beach Island project is backed by the $60 billion Sandy relief package approved in January by federal lawmakers.  Construction should begin in Harvey Cedars and Brant Beach before moving on to Surf City and should be completed by the end of October.  The project will be built according to design conditions rather than pre-storm conditions, to ensure the beaches are stronger than they were just before Sandy hit.
