With repairs now complete to a third dredge set to join beach replenishment operations on Long Beach Island in the fall, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has updated the schedule for the remainder of the federal project.

Contractor Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Co. began beachfill efforts in Ship Bottom in early May with the dredges Padre Island and Dodge Island. Work moved to Long Beach Township last month. On Tuesday, the discharge site was in the Beach Haven Gardens section of the township, with the project moving southward.

According to the ACE website, nap.usace.army.mil, the area between 117th and 119th streets in Haven Beach should be completed this month, as should the segment from north of Ryerson Lane in The Dunes to 27th Street in Beach Haven Gardens, and from north of 23rd Street in Spray Beach to south of 19th Street in North Beach Haven.

Construction is then expected to take place next month from Lavenia Avenue in Beach Haven Crest to 86th Street in Brighton Beach next month, from 27th Street in Beach Haven Gardens to south of 24th Street in Spray Beach, and from  south of 19th Street in North Beach Haven to 13th Street in the same section, still with the dredges Dodge Island and Padre Island.

In September, the Dodge Island and Padre Island are scheduled to dredge sand for the stretch of the township from 64th Street in Brant Beach to Lavenia Avenue in Beach Haven Crest. The dredge Liberty Island – which is currently returning to work on Ocean City post-repairs, according to ACE public affairs officer Steve Rochette – is slated to arrive that same month to perform beachfill operations from 87th Street in Brighton Beach to Nebraska Avenue in Beach Haven Park.

Harmony Avenue in Brant Beach to just north of 64th Street in Brant Beach is on the schedule for October, with Dodge Island and Padre Island, with those two dredges then utilized for Selfridge Avenue in Brant Beach to Harmony Avenue in Brant Beach in November.

Work is expected to take place this fall and winter in the area from 12th Street in Beach Haven to the southern boundary of the project in Holgate, with the dredge Liberty Island.

Northern sections of the project – Loveladies, North Beach and a few streets in Surf City – are expected to undergo replenishment in the winter.

As the ACE explains, “All work under the base contract is required to be complete by April 12, 2016. There are currently options on the contract for additional work that could add additional time to the contract completion date if awarded.

“Further, weather and or mechanical delays may cause a change in the construction schedule and completion date.”
