    by  • June 20, 2017 • News, Uncategorized

    The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE or Army Corps) completed an emergency beach replenishment at Ortley Beach (Toms River) over the past three weeks.  They will return in the fall to complete the job with the building of a dune which will be part of the 13 mile long dune that will stretch from Point Pleasant to Berkeley Township (Midway Beach/South Seaside Park) ending at the entrance to Island Beach State Park.  Attached are pictures of the “before” and “after” beach replenishment at 7th Avenue in Ortley Beach.

    The Army Corps schedule for this project, being implemented by Weeks Marine, Inc., can be followed on the USACE website at
