The beach replenishment project is now coming to the borough of Harvey Cedars.

According to the report, on Friday October 14, 2016, Harvey Cedars was informed that the beach replenishment project will begin in the next 7-10 days.

Although, the start of the project began today with the removal of all fencing on the beach, including walkovers, by Public Works. Public Works will replace the walkover post & rail fencing (including private walkovers) after the beach project is completed.

This project will repair and restore the dunes as well as replenish over 100 feet of flat beach from Cumberland Avenue to 78th Street. The contractor, Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company, will use Hudson Avenue as their access point. The ocean pipeline connection will be at Atlantic Avenue.

During the project the Hudson Avenue dune will be leveled for access and will be rebuilt at the end of the project, says the report.

After mobilization at Hudson, pumping of sand will begin at Atlantic and continue north to 78th Street.

Thereafter, the project will switch south and continue to Cumberland. It is anticipated the contractor will start on October 22, 2016 and depending on the weather, the project should be completed in approximately 9 days.

The report says that dune fencing will be replaced by Public Works in the spring by May 15,2017. Hard pack on walkovers will not be replaced at this point, but the hard pack (I5) on the Hudson Avenue drive-over will also be replaced by Public Works after the project, says the report.
