March Revetment, Replenishment & Beach Access Update

Revetment
On March 6, the DEP opened the bids for the revetment contract.  The lowest bidder was the EIC construction (Springfield, NJ), see: http://eicassociates.com.  It looks like EIC has been involved in many large scale marine construction projects, including rebuilding the dock at the Statue of Liberty.  The NJDEP and the Federal Highway Administration have two weeks to review the bids, after which, they will award the contract.  The Contractor then has 2-4 weeks to plan, bring in materials/equipment and set up monitoring stations.  It is projected that the project will officially start at the end of April and continue in multiple sections through September.
Replenishment:
The Army Corps are in the final design stages of the project.  They plan on having a bid package ready by July and for work to start in September/October.  The timing with the revetment works nicely.  The State DEP is working with us to ensure that we have adequate amounts of sand to fill in low spots prior to the replenishment project— our Public Works department is working non-stop to push sand and maintain our existing dune.
Beach Access:
We will do our best keep all beach access points open; however, where there is immediate work, some of those access points may be temporarily closed.  The Borough will work with the State, Contractors, law enforcement, beach associations and others to ensure that all residents and visitors are able to use our beaches safely and with minimal disruption.
