Avalon Sand Back Passing Project to Begin in May, Contract Awarded to The Yannuzzi Group, Inc. of Kinnelon, NJ

Posted on May 1, 2024

The 2024 Avalon sand back passing project will begin during the month of May.  This year’s project will move approximately 55,000 cubic yards of sand to north end beaches that experienced severe erosion during winter storm events.  The Yannuzzi Group, Inc. of Kinnelon, NJ was awarded the contract for the work during the Avalon Borough Council meeting on Wednesday, April 24th.  This project is anticipated to start on or about May 13th, 2024.  The project will take scraped sand from the borrow area between 32nd and 40th streets north to the fill area, identified as between 9th-15th streets, with the erosional hot spot between 10th-12th streets.    This project will taper the new beach into the existing beach on the north and the south.  The goal is to have a protective beach in advance of hurricane season, which begins on June 1st.

The workdays/hours for the project will be Monday through Friday from 7:00am until 3:30pm.  The Avalon beach front will be an active construction zone during this project with heavy equipment removing sand from the borrow area and heavy trucks placing the sand in the fill area before it is graded to a sloped beach.  Please be aware the Avalon beach will be an active construction zone during these days and hours and stay away from heavy equipment.  Please do not place beach chairs in the sand in areas where truck traffic is active.  The work will not occur on Memorial Day weekend, pausing Thursday through Monday, May 25-29th.  The end date of the construction activity is dependent on several factors, including daily sand transport rates and any storm activity during this project.  The project is anticipated to run into the first or second week of June.

Please be aware some beach paths in the erosion zone are closed until the beach is fully restored.  Updates on this project will be made when available.
