Sea Isle City beach replenishment underway

Posted on April 15, 2024

The final piece of a $33.7 million beach replenishment project is expected to be completed before Memorial Day, with fresh sand being added to the south end of the city.

The same contract approved through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers added sand to the south end of Ocean City and to the badly eroded north end of the Strathmere section of Upper Township over the winter, with the Sea Ise portion of the work beginning this month.

More than 100,000 cubic yards of sand have been added to the beach already, city Administrator George Savastano told City Council in a report this week.

“The project is heading south at about 88th Street towards the southernmost point for the beachfill at 94th Street. After that, the beaches will be filled northward to about 74th Street,” Savastano said. “Following completion of the south end, the project will move immediately to the center of town, where beaches will be replenished between about 29th and 52nd streets.”

Severe weather could delay the project, he warned council.
