    New Jersey beachesWe are pleased to report that post-Sandy, federally funded beach replenishment projects are moving on schedule with wide sandy beaches all along the coast awaiting summer visitors!  We extend our appreciation to the NJDEP and the Army Corps of Engineers for their extraordinary efforts in restoring our beaches and to our Congressional representatives, Governor Christie, legislators and local officials who were our advocates for post-Sandy beach replenishment funding.

    The Army Corps of Engineers projects stretch from Sandy Hook to Cape May Point.  Highlighted below is a summary of project completed or scheduled to be completed this summer.  Additionally, the Corps is in the process of finalizing Project Partnership Agreements with Long Beach Island and Atlantic County communities.
